Most widely held works by Alec Soth
Suburban world : the Norling photos by Brad Zellar ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Through more than 10,000 images, Irwin Denison Norling, the unofficial town photographer for Bloomington, Minnesota, captured the strange juxtapositions, incongruities, and dark corners of the developing suburban America of the 1950s and '60s. A competitive amateur glued to his police radio, Norling spent years examining the light and darkness, tragedies and desolation, rituals of community and celebration through the lens of the camera, deftly capturing the uneasy dichotomy between the familiar and subversive-the familiarly subversive. "That was the way it was. And the way it was, that's what I was after."

An American journey ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Robert Frank's The Americans (1958) transformed the landscape of contemporary photography. An exile from Europe, Frank criss-crossed the United States with his camera, searching for the uncomfortable truths of his adopted home. The resulting book was the defining work of photographic art in the 20th century. Fifty years later, French director Philippe Séclier decided to follow in his footsteps, retracing his path step by step. He explores the spirit of the Beat Generation by examining the impact of Frank's book, not only on the art of photography, but also on American culture. He tracks down the subjects of the photos, while also eliciting thoughts and comments from painter Ed Ruscha, photographer Raymond Depardon, and a series of leading historians and curators."--Container
