Today I received this new book by Alex Webb (published by Aperture) and had a chance to quickly flip through it. In keeping with his other excellent works, this one features a series of stunning saturated color photos, many of them with Alex's trademark style of finding an off-center, often oblique, frame divider. Here we also have a few double dividers. One of the compositions blends this well recognized style of his with what I could only describe as a possible salute to Nachtwey with a pair of legs dangling off the top left quadrant. Quite fun. What I have always found intriguing and appealing about Alex's pictures is his unique ability to see an apparent - often abstract - form of order in an otherwise highly chaotic candid scene from life. In fact, this particular body of work appears to play with the highest amount of abstraction than any other work of his that I am aware of. I like it.
