Interview with Alec Soth on his book "Dog Days Bogotá"

Hi all,

An interview with Alec Soth was just published on the Magnum Blog in which he talks about his new book “Dog Days Bogotá”.

I thought that might be of interest for some of you.

Thanks for the heads up, Martin. Looking forward to read it.

Btw, waiting for your Journal of a Photographer site to go online again. Any more audio-interviews coming up?

Sonny, Journal Of A Photographer will be up again shortly. The move to the new server is time intensive since I have to get the whole database up again. But it’s gonna work out. :-) And yes, there will be more audio interviews in the future.

Did you get a chance to read the Soth interview on the Magnum Blog?

Hi, Martin,

I liked Alec’s comment on personal interpretation of the subject.

I’m not comfortable making any proclamations about Bogotá. I always say that Sleeping by the Mississippi isn’t a document of the Mississippi River and Niagara isn’t a document of Niagara Falls. In both cases, there are huge gaps because I’m exploring my own interests. I’m making my own Mississippi, my own Niagara. The same is true with Bogotá. My experience of the place was so profoundly shaped by adoption that I could never suggest I have a clear-eyed take on things.

I’m also glad that Carrie asked the question about sequencing.

Thanks for sharing.
