I just returned from the photographer Alec Soth lecture titled: The Paralyzed Cyclops, hosted at Marquette University.
To a room of about 75 people Mr Soth made his pitch to the audience to save the essence of photography and remain honest in today's contemporary world. Using examples from his previous and recent photographs he made many talking points about 1) the fragility of photography 2) the limitations of the medium to convey a story or narrative and 3) how much of the story do you reveal to the audience?
The message I took away from his lecture was that the journey itself was the important part, and that there are points along the way that give us direction and by utilizing art, force us to mark those occasions through any means necessary.
He was pointed, candid, honest and humorous at times. His talk highlighted exactly what a good lecture should do; it provided you with a few questions, some answers, but basically just planted a seed for future creative growth.
I want to thank him for his time and insight, and I look forward to seeing his work in the new exhibition at the Haggerty Musuem.
