Back in October, Alec Soth launched a Kickstarter to provide some funding for his Winnebago Workshops series of trips around the country to provide free workshops to young artists. One of the rewards was this book, Nineteen Teens, and after some hesitation, I jumped on it.
This is maybe the 5th Alec Soth book/object I’ve acquired—From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America, House of Coates, Ping Pong Conversations, LBM Dispatch #7, and Songbook—so Nineteen Teens makes 6.
I should probably lay off a bit…
Mr. Soth’s willingness to provide some of his expertise and advice to some young artists for free is admirable, and I was happy to support it.
