Statement from Alex Webb on the back of print “‘Sancti Spiritus’. Cuba. 1993. From the collaborative book, Violet Isle, with Rebecca Norris Webb.”
“I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the unexpected, the unknown, or the secret heart of the known, awaits just around the corner.”
About Alex Webb
Alex Webb is best known for his complex and vibrant colour 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.”
