Love hurts

Categories: Art/Museums
Slate has posted a fascinating essay/slideshow by local photographer Alec Soth. It's excerpted from his most recent major project, "NIAGARA," which debuted at the Gagosian Gallery in NYC last month. Soth's intimate photos, shot around the Niagara Falls area, capture hand-written love letters, shabby motels, and flaccid, naked couples. As the pictures flash by the artist ruminates on love and its (often ugly) aftermath. The collection will be published as a book next month and goes on display at the Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis starting April 7th.
