Todd Webb United States

Cover Image - Todd Webb

Born in Detroit, Charles Clayton "Todd" Webb III (1905-2000) was one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. From the 1940s to the 1980s, Todd produced a unique body of work which has become invaluable to the history of American photography. His rich images documented life around his own country and the rest of the world, from France to New Guinea. His work had been largely forgotten until the Todd Webb Archive was established by Betsy Evans Hunt. We interviewed Betsy on WePresent, and she told us about how she came to build the archive and why Todd’s work has stood the test of time. Todd’s photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally, and can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Art Institute, and the Chicago Art Institute.
