Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb: Slant Rhymes (Hardback)

Alex Webb

-  

Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs nearly 30-year friendship and later marriage and creative partnership, this group of 82 photographs are paired one of Alex's, one of Rebecca's to create a series of visual rhymes that talk to one another often at a slant and in intriguing and revealing ways. 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. Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs nearly 30-year friendship and later marriage and creative partnership, this group of 82 photographs are paired one of Alex s, one of Rebecca s to create a series of visual rhymes that talk to one another often at a slant and in intriguing and revealing ways. "Sometimes we find our photographic slant rhymes share a similar palette or tone or geometry," writes Alex Webb in the introduction to the book. "Other times, our paired photographs strike a similar note often a penchant for surreal or surprising or enigmatic moments although often in two different keys." Made in some 15 countries, these photographs many of which have never before been published are interwoven with short text pieces written by the Webbs while they were working together and apart. Taken together, the work forms a kind unfinished love poem, told at a slant.
