„all of my ideas contained in my work come out of the experience of wandering and walking“
Alex Webb presents a personal selection of his pictures, which he has captured for almost 30 years. Visitors will see photographs from India, Greece, Grenada, Haiti; there are also exhibited pictures from Cuba or Mexico which were published in his books called La Calle and Violet Isle. The second one was prepared in cooperation with his wife, photographer Rebecca Norris Webb. Webb is usually inspired by light, colours, everyday life; sometimes he captures enigmatic moments that resonate with socio-political topics.
Alex Webb was born in San Francisco on May 5 1952. He studied history and literature at Harward. He works as a freelance photographer; since 1979 he has been a member of the Magnum Agency. His pictures have been published in numerous photography books. He has received the Leica Medal of Excellence (2000), the David Octavius Hill Medal, the Guggenheim Fellowship (2007).
