Photographer Alex Webb, whose photos have appeared in National Geographic, Life and the New York Times magazines, will discuss his work at 7:30 p.m., on Thursday, March 27 in Mendocino Hall 1003 at California State University, Sacramento.

The event, offered as part of the CSUS Visiting Artists Program, will also feature an exhibit of Webb’s color photos from March 12 to April 1 in the Design Gallery, on the 4th floor of Mariposa Hall. For exhibit hours, call 278-3962.

Webb became interested in photography in high school and majored in history and literature at Harvard University before studying photography at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. He began working as a photojournalist in 1974 and has traveled extensively, documenting small town life in black and white. While traveling in the Caribbean and Mexico in the late 1970s, he began a body of color work that continues to this day.

Webb is the author of five books and has received numerous grants and awards for his work, including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and the Leica Medal of Excellence. Among the museums that have exhibited his work are the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Photographic Arts, the International Center for Photography and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

The event is free and a reception will be held immediately after the presentation. For media assistance, call the CSUS public affairs office at
