"When Alex Webb first walked across the bridge from El Paso to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in 1975, he was a 23-year-old hotshot photographer. He had just become a nominee to the esteemed Magnum photo collective and was already noted for his alienated black-and-white images capturing the American social landscape.

Mexico transformed him, and for the next three years he returned to the border area often to make lyrical black-and-white images that explored the blending and clashing of cultures. To him, Mexico was so close to the United States but so fundamentally different." - James Estrin, September 6, 2016
