“This is Alec Soth.  So I am a photographer and the project I am doing deals with the subject of retreating from the world.  That can involve everything from hermits to monks.”

“I think it is something in the culture right now and is, in some ways, preparation for the decline of the American empire.”

“A part of it is a fantasy of having retreat”

“It is not really about running away. It is about the desire to run away.” I can really relate to this quote as it is something that is a daily feeling.
