‘If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough,’ said Robert Capa. Scot Sothern’s 1990 project Low Life portrays the prostitutes he meets and sleeps with, accompanied by diary entries in which he’ll describe his day: friction with the ex-wife, tenderness towards his son, visit to a hooker. You can’t get much closer than that.
