Höchst beeindruckende Fotos aus Mexiko aus den vergangen vier Jahrzehnten zeigt die New York Times in einem Artikel über den begnadeten Fotografen Alex Webb (1952 in San Francisco geboren):
When Alex Webb first walked across the bridge from El Paso to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in 1975, he was a 23-year-old hotshot photographer.

"This collection is not intended to be a definitive documentary view of the 'very, very big and complicated country' that is Mexico, Mr. Webb said. It is, instead, a collection of mesmerizing street photographs that provokes awe for their sublime composition and visceral feel of being in Mexico’s public spaces.”—Jim Estrin, from “Capturing Color and Complexity in Mexico,” New York Times Lens Blog.
