    I hope you are aware of the fact that Mr Soth is not just an amateur, he is a Magnum photographer…

      Everyone is so proud of needing a Magnum photographer. You can fit a regular photographer over your head, so I can’t imagine why you’d need a bigger one.

      this site is full of people who aren’t amateurs!

    I ADORE his work. No one will ever believe me, but I received an e-mail from him once. I think I deleted it on accident, but anyways- I love him so much. He’s a fantastic photographer.

    His photographs are fantastic, I wonder if he photographs on impulse, or if there is a narrative behind his work.
