Statement from Alex Webb on the back of print
«I keep returning to these words of James Baldin, which seem as apt today as when he wrote them nearly sixty years ago:
‘Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.'»
James Baldwin quote from the essay. «As Much Truth as One Can Bear», The New York Times Book Review, January 14, 1962
Alex Webb is best known for his complex and vibrant color photographs of serendipitous or enigmatic moments, often in places with socio-political tensions. Over the past 45 years, Webb has worked in places as varied as the U.S.-Mexico border, Haiti, Istanbul, and, most recently, a number of U.S. cities. “My work is questioning and exploratory,” he says. “I believe in photographs that convey a certain level of ambiguity, that ask questions rather than provide answers.”
