The Street Photography of Alex Webb: Sweet Home Chicago

The Street Photography of Alex Webb: Sweet Home Chicago

Photography by: Alex Webb

Photographs from the Streets of Chicago is a wonderful video photo-essay, a collection of photographs by the acclaimed contemporary street photographer, Alex Webb. Unlike street photographers of the Chicago School (Callahan, Metzger, Sturr and Sterling), Alex Webb has chosen to photograph the city’s multitudinous character in color. Having spent most of his three-decades long career shooting outside of the United States, Webb turns his lens to Chicago during this very important election year.
