Alec Soth: I Know how Furiously Your Heart is Beating and postcard set

Taking its name from a line in Wallace Stevens’ poem “The Gray Room,” Alec Soth’s latest book is a lyrical exploration of the limitations of photographic representation. Now made available with a set of four postcards displaying images of Alec Soth's I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating exhibition at Foam, now on display from 11 September 2020 until 6 December 2020.

These large-format color photographs are made all over the world, they aren’t about any particular place or population. By a process of intimate and often extended engagement, Soth’s portraits and images of his subject’s surroundings involve an exploration into the extent to which a photographic likeness can depict more than the outer surface of an individual, and perhaps even plumb the depths of something unknowable about both the sitter and the photographer.
