Rather than the stereotypical images of picture-postcard beaches and perfect Art Deco architecture, this eclectic collection of photographs reveals another side of "the sunshine state." Through his travels from Fort Pierce and Daytona Beach to Key Largo, from Suwanee and Apalachicola to Disney World, Webb's vivid and compelling images reflect an exploratory and questioning approach to his subjects, both people and places. Capturing the diverse cultures and subcultures of Florida, these photographs are at times political foray and sociological documentation, and are at times ironic, impressionistic records of the passage of human lives in society. His accompanying text describes his physical and emotional journey across Florida, giving the reader/viewer a special insight into his personal and unique vision. Alex Webb's photography books include "Crossings: Photographs from the U.S.-Mexico Border, " " Amazon: From the Floodplains to the Clouds, Under a Grudging Sun: Photographs from Haiti Libere, Hot Light/Half-Made Worlds: Photographs from the Tropics," and the limited edition "Dislocations." A member of Magnum Photos since 1979, he has received numerous awards and fellowships. Webb's work has been exhibited worldwide, and his images are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the International Center for Photography. His photographs have been published in the "New York Times Magazine, Life, Geo, National Geographic, Aperture, " and many other magazines.Read Less
