The Only Photography Blog I Ever Truly Loved

Alec Soth birthdayWhen photographer Alec Soth closed down his blog in 2007, he didn’t dwell on the details. “I’m hitting the road and hanging up the blog,” he wrote. “Send me a letter—I’m sick of e-mail.” In a flash, the only photography blog I ever truly loved was finished. Alec didn’t just telegraph his passions when he posted; he made them infectious. Oh, and he was hilarious.

Enough of the eulogizing. He’s back. In December, Soth launched the delightful group blog Little Brown Mushrooms (an appendage of his new publishing adventure), and it’s an entirely different beast. Reading it feels a little bit like being late to a treasure hunt and scrambling to catch up without the benefit of the first clues. And that’s not a bad thing. Like I said: delightful.

I love this blog too, the old one and the new one, so thank you for sharing! It does indeed feel "a little bit like being late to a treasure hunt and scrambling to catch up." From Soth's blog, I found myself on other photography blogs I like as well, one of which I learned about the cool photography book "Drive" by Andrew Bush.
