Hot Light/Half-Made Worlds. Photographs from the Tropics. Photographs by Alex Webb. Thames & Hudson, New York, 1986. 94 pp. Large oblong quarto. First U.S. edition. SIGNED on half-title page. Hardbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Color reproductions.
Color work from Mexico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Barbados, and other equatorial countries. Unlike many photographers seduced by the intense, saturated colors of these regions, Webb is fully aware of the need of subject matter other than "just" color. Expertly seen, these photographs convey a sense of mystery and other- worldliness about the tropical life to the south of the U.S.
Fine- with some shelf wear to lower board edges; Fine jacket.
