Slee­ping by the Mis­sis­sip­pi” by Alec Soth is one of the defi­ning publi­ca­ti­ons in the pho­to­book era. First published by Steidl in 2004, it was Soth’s first book, sold through three edi­ti­ons, and esta­blished him as one of the lea­ding lights of con­tem­pora­ry pho­to­gra­phic prac­tice. This MACK edi­ti­on laun­ches to coin­ci­de with the first exhi­bi­ti­on in Lon­don dedi­ca­ted to the series at Beetles+Huxley gal­le­ry, and inclu­des two new pho­to­graphs that were not inclu­ded in the pre­vious ver­si­ons of the book.

Evol­ving from a series of road trips along the Mis­sis­sip­pi River, “Slee­ping by the Mis­sis­sip­pi” cap­tures America’s ico­nic yet oft-neglec­ted ‘third coast’. Soth’s rich­ly descrip­ti­ve, lar­ge-for­mat colour pho­to­graphs pre­sent an eclec­tic mix of indi­vi­du­als, land­s­capes, and inte­ri­ors. Sen­suous in detail and raw in sub­ject, Slee­ping by the Mis­sis­sip­pi eli­cits a con­sis­tent mood of lone­li­ness, lon­ging, and reve­rie.

‘In the book’s 46 ruth­less­ly edi­ted pic­tures’, wri­tes Anne Wil­kes Tucker in the ori­gi­nal essay published in the book, ‘Soth allu­des to ill­ness, pro­crea­ti­on, race, crime, learning, art, music, death, reli­gi­on, redemp­ti­on, poli­tics, and cheap sex.’
