"To me it all is photography. You have to go out and explore the world with a camera"
- Alex Webb
Recognized as a pioneer of American color photography, since the 1970s, Webb has consistently created photographs characterized by intense color and light.
His work, with its richly layered and complex composition, touches on multiple genres, including street photography, photojournalism, and fine art.
Webb’s ability to distill gesture, color, and contrasting cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of enigma, irony, and humor.
