Alec Soth's Archived Blog

The end of an era

Filed under: studio — alecsothblog @ 4:12 pm

After three years, my amazing studio manager Kerri Jamison (aka The Red Bull or Special K), has moved on to the greener pastures of advertising as Art Buyer for Fallon. Kerri and I shared a lot of adventures, many of which involved headgear:

Kerri and I on assignment in Tennessee for Life Magazine.

Preparing for troubled chimpanzees (and the fecal matter they like to throw at photographers) for a NY Times Magazine assignment.

I’ll miss Kerri terribly, but fortunately I found an amazingly competent redhead to replace her. I’m thrilled to have Eric William Carroll join me in the studio:

  2. I knew Kerri was aka ‘Special K’, but hadn’t heard about ‘Red Bull’ until today. You will let us in on Eric’s Soth Studio nicknames as they develop, right Alec?
    How about we start off with ‘The Red Baron’?
    Welcome Eric!

  3. I like ‘The Red Baron’ but it makes me hungry.
