“I feel the space, the light, the color, the form and the scene simultaneously. I’m not thinking, I’m sensing the street. For me, color isn’t just about color, light isn’t just about light, space isn’t just about space, form isn’t just about form. I’m intrigued with the emotional and sensory tenor of these elements.” 

A street photographer whose unique vision spans four decades, Webb does not stage his photos; instead, he pursues the gaps that emerge when immigrants, transients, and children inhabit the same space. For that reason, much of Webb's work can be linked to isolation, whether it is Webb's isolation as an outside observer or the isolation of his subjects from their surroundings. 


Early in his career, Webb focused on the Mississippi Delta, using black-and-white film to portray a perpetually conflicted American region. Though he switched to color in the late 1970s, Webb's focus has always gone deeper than the hues, vibrancy, and heat of the climates he photographs. Completing work in Florida, Cuba, Mexico and the U.S-Mexico Border, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, India, Grenada, Istanbul, and Brazil, Webb has earned a name for himself by publishing work in several international publications, including National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, Life Magazine, and Geo Magazine.
