Last June, acclaimed Magnum photographer Alex Webb gave an Artist Talk on release of his book, The Suffering of Light: Thirty Years of Photographs. This exquisite publication is the first comprehensive monograph charting the career of the acclaimed American photographer. The collection presents his most iconic images, many of which were taken in the far corners of the earth, and brings a fresh perspective to his extensive catalog.
Alex Webb‘s photographs have appeared in a wide range of publications, including the New York Times Magazine, Life, Stern, and National Geographic, and have been exhibited at the International Center of Photography, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He is a recipient of the Leica Medal of Excellence (2000) and the Premio Internacional de Fotografia Alcobendas (2009). Webb, a member of Magnum Photos since 1976, lives in New York City.
Alex Webb’s exhibition The Suffering of Light will be on view at Aperture Bookstore & Gallery beginning December 8, 2011 and running through January 19, 2012. Find the accompanying monograph here.
