MAGNUM PHOTOS - Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb
Alex Webb was born in San Francisco and became interested in photography during his high school years. He is best known for his vibrant and complex color work, especially from Latin America and the Caribbean. He has published seven books and has shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the High Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. He became a full member of Magnum Photos in 1979.
Originally a poet and journalist, Rebecca Norris Webb had her first New York City solo exhibition at Ricco Maresco Gallery in 2006, the same year that her first book, The Glass Between Us, was published. Her series, which uses text and images to explore the complex relationship between people and animals in cities, has been included in several group exhibitions, including Why Look at Animals? at the George Eastman House. The project was awarded sponsorship by the Blue Earth Alliance. Currently, she’s working on a series taken in the American West Called My Dakota and has recently published a joint book with her husband and creative partner, Alex Webb, called Violet Isle: a Duet of Photographs from Cuba.
