The Alec Soth 'From Here to There' Series Profiles America

The series has an indie feel to it, with non-model subjects and organically real scenery in each photograph. Some of the shots Alec Soth takes are strange, while others are humorous or emotionally charged.

Alec Soth has referred to the project as "we surfing in the real world," as he gets a brief glimpse of all sorts of regular people.
