NIAGRA. Essays by Philip Brookman and Richard Ford

Gottingen: Steidl, (2006). First edition. Hardcover. This copy is signed by Alec Soth on the title page. Following on from the hugely succesful, 'Sleeping by the Mississippi' (2004), Soth‘s 'Niagara' came out in 2006 – and saw the photographer making work on both sides of the US-Canada border in the locale of the famous falls. The book is romantic in theme, but maybe in a sense that is more technical than actual. Soth photographed lovers, newlyweds, loners, and families. He collected personal letters and documented the hotels, motels, and bedrooms that service the region’s honeymoon-heavy tourist industry. The book is spattered with melancholic notes – the faux leather back cover is embossed with the message, “If there was a nice apartment and I have a decent job and you felt happy and thought there could be a nice history together would you come home?” (taken from a handwritten note the photographer included in the book). Issued sans dust jacket. A fine copy bound in faux black leather with inset color photographs to front cover and eight lines of text to rear cover. Item #14844
