Selections presents a wide range of images hand-picked by Alex Webb while giving a unique opportunity to gaze into diversity of almost 30 years of artist’s creative output. Expressive yet colorful shots were captured on the streets of India, Greece, Grenada, Haiti, Cuba and Mexico. Photographs from the two latter destinations grew to become the subject of both of Alex Webb’s books, La Calle and Violet Isle, as well as for a part of wider collaboration with Rebecca Norris Webb, artist’s wife and a professional photographer.

The unique value of Alex Webb’s photography comes from the artist’s ability to capture the enigmatic and at the same time paradoxical moments. It may happen that the views and events that he is able to capture become a commentary on the economic or state situation of the place of visit. Many of his photos seem too be too absorbing or too accurate not to be staged. Webb describes his work as an arduous process and often not a very efficient one.

I spend most of the time walking the streets with my camera, guided by intuition and then I point the lens at places of my choice. It is not all the time, that gods of photography are propitious to me and allow me to come across a unique moment. –Alex Webb
