Gathered Leaves: Photographs by Alec Soth, Science Museum, London

Science Museum, London, hosts the first major UK exhibition by award-winning American photographer Alec Soth, in Media Space from 6 October. The exhibition will survey a decade of Soth’s work and will be the UK premiere of his eagerly anticipated new series Songbook (2012-14), a chronicle of many journeys across America and a search for human interaction in an era increasingly defined by virtual social networks. Fragmentary, funny and sad, Songbook is a lyrical depiction of the tension between American individualism, and the desire to be united.
