Official Alex Toth website : News : Memoir: Sol Harrison and knowing “what to leave out”


At times it’s to imagine that Toth was not born with his clean and powerful style right out of the gate. But as this latest postcard from Toth shows he also learned his lessons from others like Sol Harrison and worked hard to apply them - and apply them he did to legendary effect!

Along with the memoir is an image from a section of an envelope that Toth uses as an example for us young Tyros to learn from. It shows image reduction and helps us see “what to leave out” or get to the pure form as it were. A Toth cover from ‘The Film Journal’ has also been include to further demonstrate this principle.

So take a look, learn and enjoy…
