Project Description

Rebecca Norris Webb has published five photography books, most recently “Memory City”  with Alex Webb (Radius Books, 2014): a meditation on film, memory, and time. As well as “Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image” (Aperture, 2014). Originally a poet, Norris Webb often interweaves her text and photographs in her books, most notably in her third book “My Dakota”—an elegy to the sudden death of her brother—which was selected as one of best photography books of 2012 by PDN, Photo-Eye, and Time.

Norris Webb is interested in exploring the complicated relationship between people and the natural world. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is in the collections of the George Eastman House Museum, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, among others. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, Time, Wall Street Journal, Le Monde Magazine, The Guardian, and the International New York Times.
