As is often his custom, Soth began 'A Pound of Pictures' by taking a series of road trips, in this case on a quest to further explore a deeper connection between the and physicality of as a medium. Depicting a vast array of subjects — from Buddhist statues and birdwatchers to sun-seekers and a bust of Abraham Lincoln — this series reflects on the desire to pin down and crystallize experience, especially as it is represented and recollected by printed images.⁠
•⁠
Throughout this kaleidoscopic sequence of runs the iconography of daily life: , , and images of images. Soth describes this narrative, writing, “If the pictures are about anything other than their shimmering surface, they are about the process of their own making.” Soth, who is not only a , but an inveterate collector of photographs, describes the works in this as arising out of a wish to understand the “weight” of photography both philosophically and metaphorically, as in the emotional weight of images. The exhibition takes its title from a vendor Soth discovered on his travels in Los Angeles who sells photographs by the pound. ⁠
