Acclaimed American photographer Alec Soth presents an incisive pictorial statement about the final days of President George Bush. 'The Last Days of W.' features photographs that have been taken in North America over the last decade and which, in the artist's words, represent 'a panoramic look at a country exhausted by its catastrophic leadership', focusing predominantly on landscapes, taking a broader look at the social crisis and urban decay that has been Bush's legacy.
“In assembling this collection of pictures I’ve made over the last eight years, I’m not really trying to accomplish much at all. But as President Bush once said, 'One of the great things about books is, sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.'' - Alec Soth.
