LA CALLE REVIEWS
“In 1978, Webb took a picture of a boy staring warily in a Mexican graveyard, with a horse silhouetted high on a hill in the distance. The image is typical of the Magnum photographer’s three decades of work in Mexico, an engine of both awe and empathy. Webb shot mostly in color, with an eye for hot reds, sky blues, and dusty terra cottas. But in nearly every image such brightness is offset by deep shadow. Some compositions are as stark and strange as anything by de Chirico, but, more typically, the frame is alive with incident: four gesturing figures are anchored by the glass cannisters of a cold-drink stand; three women bend down in grief around a body lying crumpled in the gutter.”—New Yorker review of La Calle, September 2016
