Part of a long-running touring series of Photoworks talks, acclaimed Magnum photographer Alec Soth reveals the eight photographs he would take with him to a desert island. 

Loosely following the format of Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Soth will discuss his choices with host Stephen Bull and explore how his choices reflect his life and career. 

This event is organised in collaboration with Photoworks
