He was notably close friends with Georgia O’Keefe, Ansel Adams, and Harry Callahan; and his work has been likened to that of Callahan, as well as Berenice Abbot, Walker Evans, and Eugène Atget. Webb’s photographs are included in major museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. The artist’s photographic archive is located in Portland, Maine.
