Statement from Alex Webb on the back of print ‘From the book, The Suffering of Light. Thessaloniki, Greece. 2003. by Alex Webb’
“I was born into a family of artists, and my early life was marked by a series of false starts. Confronted with the white canvas, I couldn’t seem to paint. Faced with the blank page, I couldn’t seem to write. I slowly realized that I needed the physical world- with its endless bounty of paradoxes and contradictions- in order to create. I understood that for me, at least, the world was more remarkable than that which I could imagine”
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.”
