Slant Rhymes is a conversation between two world renowned photographers, Magnum photographer Alex Webb and poet and photographer Rebecca Norris Webb, a married creative couple who have authored 18 books.
In 2005, Rebecca Norris Webb set out to photograph her home state of South Dakota, a sparsely populated frontier state on the Great Plains with more buffalo, pronghorn, mule deer and prairie dogs than people. South Dakota is a land of powwows and rodeos, corn palaces and buffalo roundups; a harsh and beautiful landscape dominated by space, silence, brutal wind and extreme weather. The next year, however, everything changed for Norris Webb, when her brother died unexpectedly of heart failure. "For months," she writes in the introduction to this volume, "one of the few things that eased my unsettled heart was the landscape of South Dakota. For each of us, does loss have its own geography?" My Dakota is a small intimate book about the west and its weathers, and an elegy for a lost brother.
""The Violet Isle" is a little-known nickname for Cuba, inspired by its richly colored soil - one of the many qualities that make the country so seductive to photographers. This handsomely designed, slipcased edition offers an engaging, at times unsettling document of a country that, for the past 50 years, has remained in an economic, political, cultural and ecological bubble, isolated from the rest of the world (though it is unlikely to stay that way for much longer). The 70 images collected here are a collaboration between Magnum photographer Alex Webb, who captures Cuba's street life with his trademark attention to detail and color, and Rebecca Norris Webb, who focuses on the unique, quixotic collection of animals she found there. This volume is an insightful blend of two different photographic aesthetics. The famous travel writer Pico Iyer provides an accompanying essay." -- jacket.
"Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb take an elegiac look at Rochester, New York. For this project, Alex took images with his last rolls of Kodachrome, a formerly vibrant color film that can now only be processed as black-and-white. The resulting photos have a weathered quality akin to a fading memory. Alex also took to the streets of Rochester and shot in digital color--work that punctuates the black and white work with images from his signature style. Rebecca, who still uses film for all her work, responded to the medium's uncertain future by creating an elegiac refrain of color still lifes and portraits of Rochester women past and present. Woven into the book are quotes by many of the famous writers and thinkers who have been connected to Rochester, including women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony, abolitionist Frederick Douglass, and poets John Ashbery and Ilya Kaminsky. And the authors have also created a timeline on the cultural history of the city that traces the evolution of a once-vibrant and now complex city."--

La Calle brings together more than thirty years of photography from the streets of Mexico by Alex Webb, spanning 1975 to 2007. Whether in black and white or color, Webb's richly layered and complex compositions touch on multiple genres. As Geoff Dyer writes, "Wherever he goes, Webb always ends up in a Bermuda-shaped triangle where the distinctions between photojournalism, documentary, and art blur and disappear." Webb's ability to distill gesture, light, and cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of mystery, irony, and humor. Following an initial trip in the mid-1970s, Webb returned frequently to Mexico, working intensely on the U.S.-Mexico border and into southern Mexico throughout the 1980s and '90s, inspired by what poet Octavio Paz calls "Mexicanism--delight in decorations, carelessness and pomp, negligence, passion, and reserve." La Calle presents a commemoration of the Mexican street as a sociopolitical bellwether--albeit one that has undergone significant transformation since Webb's first trips to the country. Newly commissioned pieces from noted Mexican and Mexican American authors lend further insight into the roles the streets have played for generations: part arterial network, part historical palimpsest, and part absurdist theater of the everyday.
Gathering some of Alex Webbs most iconic images, many of which were taken in the far corners of the earth, "The Suffering of Light" brings a fresh perspective to his extensive catalogue. Recognized as a pioneer of American colour photography, Webb has since the 1970s consistently created photographs characterized by intense colour and light. His work, with its richly layered and complex composition, touches on multiple genres, including street photography, photojournalism and fine art, but as Webb claims, to me it all is photography. You have to go out and explore the world with a camera. Webbs ability to distil gesture, colour and contrasting cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of enigma, irony and humour. Featuring key works alongside previously unpublished photographs, This is Webbs first comprehensive monograph and provides the most thorough examination to date of this modern masters prolific, thirty-year career.
