Alex Webb: La Calle: Photographs From Mexico
November 15, 2016 until January 7, 2017

For over 30 years and in more than 40 trips, photographer Alex Webb (b. 1952) has traversed the streets of Mexico. His first visit, in 1975, introduced him to the rich culture and people, enticing him to go back, time and again.

With the publication of Webb's most recent book, we are pleased to present a 60-piece traveling exhibit organized by Aperture Foundation and Fundación Televisa. In La Calle, the magic, mystery, and shadows of our complex neighbor are revealed through the mastery of Webb's receptive eye. Part documentarian, part lover, Webb both surrenders to and collaborates with the street, creating a layered, complicated portrait of the seductive muse that is Mexico.
