REBECCA NORRIS WEBB (American, b. 1956)
Originally a poet, Rebecca Norris Webb has published three photography books that explore the complicated relationship between people and the natural world — The Glass Between Us, Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba (with Alex Webb), and My Dakota, which interweaves her text and photographs from her home state of South Dakota. My Dakota was selected as one of best photography books of 2012 by PDN, Photo-Eye, and Time.
Her work has been exhibited widely, including at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Robert Klein Gallery, Boston; Ricco/Maresca Gallery, New York City. Her work has appeared in Time, The New Yorker, National Geographic, and Le Monde Magazine. Teaching workshops together for Aperture Foundation and the Museum of the City of New York, among others, the Webbs are working on a book of essays and photographs, On Street Photography and the Poetic Image, to be published by Aperture in 2014. Rebecca’s second joint photography book with Alex, Memory City, will be published in spring 2014 by Radius Books.
Born in Rushville, Indiana, Norris Webb graduated from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in 1989.
