The Suffering of Light
Through October 29, 2011
Celebrated photojournalist since 1974 and Magnum
Photographic Collective member since 1976, Alex Webb is a heavy hitter.
Educated in literature and history at Harvard and photography at the
Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts his sensibility goes beyond the
image, and so do we.
The works are embedded with layers of narrative and an absolute
connectedness to each moment. Image becomes experience and we are
transported, elevated from our world and dropped into each depicted
frame. We stand before the pieces as insiders not outsiders. Often we
are brought to the developing world and allowed to engage situations we
could or at times would not want to find ourself. While the work may
have set out to be photojournalistic view or documentary record, they
connect and transcend to art with powerful perspective.
