Alec Soth responds to Robert Adams

When photographer Alec Soth was asked to participate in Apeture’s Remix project by creating a work in response to a book that influenced his career, Soth chose photographer Robert Adams’s 1985 photo-essay Summer Nights (Marquand SAPH TR610 .A33 1985).

This beautiful video, Summer Nights at the Dollar Tree, is Soth’s reply to Adams.
