TWO WORDS: Congratulations! Felicidades!

ALEX WINS “PREMIO INTERNACIONAL DE FOTOGRAFIA ALCOBENDAS”

Alex Webb, Tehuantepec, Mexico, 1985.

Please join me in congratulating Alex for winning the first photography prize from a new museum in Alcobendas, Spain, just outside of Madrid. According to the Council of Alcobendas, his photographs show a “lyric and realistic sense of childhood and an overall sense of being human.”  The winning photograph (above) is “Tehuantepec, Mexico, 1985.”  The prize will include an exhibition of Alex’s work that will run from February to May 2011.

Alex is currently in Spain where he’s receiving the prize this week.  Below are two links that include more information about Alex and the prize. The first link is to an announcement about the prize in Spanish, and the second is to an English translation on the Magnum site. –– Rebecca Norris Webb
