Robert Klein Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work from Memory City, the latest collaboration and book project from husband and wife photographic team, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb.
Shot in Rochester, New York, Memory City is both a eulogy and an homage to Eastman Kodak and the city that once thrived in its prosperity. Shot in both digital and film color, as well as Alex Webb’s last remaining rolls of Kodachrome (which can now only be processed in black and white), the work looks back into the city’s history, and compels the viewer to ponder the uncertainty of its future.
Join us on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 2pm to 5pm for the opening reception of Memory City. With an artists’ talk at 3:30pm, followed by a book signing with available copies of Memory City (Radius Books, 2014) in the gallery, this opening reception is not to be missed!
