“[Webb’s] language is akin to painting, at which he actually tried his hand before turning to photography. Among painters, he is particularly fond of Giorgio de Chirico and Georges Braque: the former, for his surrealism, his dream-writing, and his metaphysical oeuvre; the latter, for his chromatic boldness and innovation.—from “Alex Webb: Of Light and Shadow” by Jonas Cuenin of L’oeil de la Photographie.
