Sleepwalking, guest edited by Alec Soth, explores photography’s relationship to dreams, wakefulness, and chance.

Sleepwalking covers a surprising array of images and stories from the Soviet-era Czech artist Emila Medová to Sophie Calle’s discovery of an abandoned Parisian hotel to Soth’s own photographs from his travels in the United States. In this issue, Jesse Dorris interviews Duane Michals about luck and fate, Marina Warner explores the enduring resonance of the figure of the sleepwalker, and artists including Etienne Courtois, Maja Daniels, and Elliott Jerome Brown Jr. present surreal and imaginative new series. The Summer 2022 issue also introduces The PhotoBook Review, a new section for lively engagement with photobooks, featuring reviews of recent titles by Nona Faustine, Samuel Fosso, Óscar Monzón, and others.
