Street photographer and Magnum member since 1979 Alex Webb is surely one of the most creative and consistent photographers of our time, having published 15 books and photographed numerous countries, including Mexico, Haiti and Turkey, during a career of over 40 years. The photographer is still active today having recently published his newest project La Calle, featuring street photography from Mexico taken over the course of 30 years.

“It’s not just that that and that exist. It’s that that, that, that and that all exist in the same frame. I’m always looking for something more. You take in too much; perhaps it becomes total chaos. I’m always playing along that line: adding something more, yet keeping it short of chaos.”
— Alex Webb

Diversity seems to be the key word here, with pictures so rich and filled with elements that demand careful observation and revisitation to be fully appreciated, every time calling you to something new.
