He is the youngest full member of Magnum Photo Agency, the prestigious photographers’ collective, a great honor in a photographer’s career.

Soth will speak on his exhibition Sleeping by the Mississippi as well as other projects and his evolution as an artist.
There will be a book signing with books available for purchase following the talk.
