Alex Webb: The Suffering of Light: Thirty Years of Photographs
Library Shelf Location 18.WEBB
Publication Date 2011
Description Recognized as a pioneer of American colour photography, Alex Webb has since the 1970s consistently created photographs characterized by intense colour and light. Featuring key works alongside previously unpublished photographs, The Suffering of Light is Webb’s first comprehensive monograph and provides the most thorough examination to date of this modern master’s prolific, thirty-year career. His work, with its richly layered and complex composition, touches on many genres, including street photography, photojournalism and fine art, but as Webb says, ‘to me it all is photography. You have to go out and explore the world with a camera.’ Gathering some of Alex Webb’s most iconic images The Suffering of Light brings a fresh perspective to his extensive catalogue.
