Please join us for an evening with one of contemporary America's premier visual storytellers.

Shanghai FCC will host Alec Soth for a joint event with the Shanghai Center of Photography, where his work is showcased now in an exhibition, 'The Space Between Us'.

Alec is best known for his documentary work on the people and landscapes of the U.S. interior, but his career spans everything from fashion assignments to large-scale narrative projects.

He's also got more than 200,000 Instagram followers.This event includes a guided tour of the photos, and a Q&A with Alec via video from his home in Minnesota. It's free for club members.

WHEN: Tuesday 18th August. Entry from 6pm, Q&A from 7pm

WHERE: Shanghai Center of Photography, Longteng Avenue 2555-1

ENTRY: Members FREE / Non-Members 50 RMB


Alec can offer insights not just for aspiring photographers but for anyone interested in real-life storytelling. How to connect with strangers? Why do people agree to be photographed, or not? How to be fair to your subject? The importance of perspective.

"This exhibition is also conceived to encourage young Chinese photographers to look at the normal life that surrounds them and find the value in even the most humble of ordinary lives" -- SCoP.
