Alec Soth is a Minneapolis-based photographer, whose works has already been featured in Thisispaper.
Presented photo series, entitled Broken Manual, is a photographic investigation of the places, that provides the ultimate escape from modern life. Broken Manual includes pictures of people, that retreat to escape civilization for a wilder existence — monks, survivalists, hermists and runaways.
The madness of a crumbling human world may be overwhelming, no wonder, some individuals feel a need to escape. The final body of work is presented in a form of a book. Made in an edition of 300, each copy is unique, in its own book-safe, with a signed and numbered Alec Soth photograph and a small booklet.
