About Matthew Webb

Documentary photographer Matthew Webb has examined a diverse range of subject matter, from globalization, Soviet space exploration, and the confrontation between the urban and the rural, to personal narratives of individual families or communities. Working predominantly in black-and- white—to foreground the human experience rather than the play of color and light—he has captured images in the United Kingdom, Yemen, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and China. Primarily fascinated by the tension between modernization and tradition, Webb searches for the common experiences between disparate places.
