Good exhibition - great find!

Alec Soth: The boyhood home of Johnny Cash

Today went with Sarah to see the Alec Soth exhibition at Open Eye, Sleeping By The Mississippi. Enjoyed the photos that intertwine landscape detail with objective portrayal of the human characters encountered, very much in the style of William Eggleston. But the great surprise was finding a small pile of sale copies of Robert Frank's The Americans, a book that I'd been searching for unsuccessfully for the past two months or so.
