OUTSIDE THE FRAME: Alex and Rebecca

For the new issue of VISURA, an online magazine of photography and writing featuring established and emerging photographers, we decided to try something we’ve never attempted before: In the spirit of a duet, we have paired photographs from our joint book, VIOLET ISLE, with stories we wrote about what lies “outside the frame.” On the VISURA site, there’s also a slide show of some 20 images from Cuba, some of which have never appeared online.

So, for our first OUTSIDE THE FRAME column, we decided to extend this notion of a duet of text and images by adding two audio files to this blog posting ¬†(click on the arrows below the first two photographs to hear some of the text pieces featured in the 9th issue of VISURA). ¬†Lastly, Rebecca has also included a second photograph from Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, heretofore unpublished online, a portrait of the man she met and talks about in her audio piece.—Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

    I have enthusiastically followed Visura for a while now. It’s a dynamic venue to offer a glimpse of your wondrous images and the poignancy of your words.

    I like the audio addition to your images on Two Looks. It adds a new, succinct dimension, without being intrusive or editorializing. Rebecca, your vocal rendering has a lovely, earthy quality.
