ART IN AMERICA: Memory City

April 17, 2014

©Alex Webb, from “Memory City” (with Rebecca Norris Webb), Radius Books and Thames and Hudson, spring 2014, as published in Art in America, April 2014

“[Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb] were attracted by [Rochester's] rich photographic tradition (besides Kodak’s 134 years there, it’s also home to the George Eastman House, the country’s first photographic museum, and the Visual Studies Workshop, a center for photography and other media arts founded by Nathan Lyons) and its historical significance as a center of progressive activity during the 19th century (counting Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony as residents). They turned their attention, however, to today’s Rochester: ‘a city,’ wrote Alex Webb in an email to A.i.A., ‘struggling with many of the urban ills that bedevil so many U.S. Rust Belt cities’ yet endowed with ‘its own unique sense of energy and community.’

Memory City is the couple’s second book, following their exploration of modern-day Cuba in 2009’s Violet Isle. Photographing Rochester’s streets, Webb contributes black-and-white images taken with his last rolls of Kodachrome (which can no longer be processed in color), interspersed with digital full-color pictures, whereas Norris Webb, using only film, offers still lifes and portraits of women from the region. ‘We knew from the start we wanted the conceptual collaboration to be as layered as Rochester itself and the many cities, past and present, within in,’ Norris Webb wrote, with the pair aiming for ‘an elegiac tone befitting the fading days of Kodak and film.'”—ART IN AMERICA, April 2014

“Rochester, in upstate New York, has been the home of Kodak since the company’s start in 1888. When it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb decided to use film made by the company to shoot the city. For the project, Webb used his last rolls of Kodachrome, the famous but now-discontinued film, developing it as hazy black and white since its special color process is no longer available. The results look like any struggling but hopeful city, quiet but proud.”—Rebecca Robertson, ART News

AMERICAN PHOTO: Memory City

April 4, 2014
©

©Rebecca Norris Webb, “Amanda and Her Flower Girl Dress,” from “Memory City” (with Alex Webb), Radius Books/Thames&Hudson, June 2014

“For their project Memory City, photographers Rebecca Norris Webb and her husband Alex Webb traveled to Rochester, New York—the home of Eastman Kodak for 125 years—to document the city in the wake of the company’s bankruptcy in 2012 and to pay tribute to their respective relationships to analog imagery.

Both photographers used Kodak film for this project. Her husband shot with Koda­chrome, his sole medium for more than 30 years; its once-vibrant color can now be processed only with black-and-white chemistry, giving it a distressed look he likens to fading memories. Norris Webb, who still uses film for all her work, used Portra, inspired by an analogy of the medium as a woman’s special-occasion outfit—memorable, but fleeting, worn only once. ‘I think it’s the tactile quality that I’ll miss most when I have to eventually switch to digital,” she says. “That slip of celluloid that’s accompanied me to every moment I’ve ever photographed, like a delicate yet indelible dress.’

Norris Webb’s portraits of Rochester women include the image shown here, of the Webbs’ former assistant, Amanda Webster. She and her family reflect the city’s past and present in photography: Her father and grand­father both worked for Kodak, and Amanda is currently studying photog­raphy at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Norris Webb photo­graphed her in her grandmother’s house in the 14621 neighbohood—known by its zip code, it’s one of the most ethnically diverse in the city—in the spring of 2012, holding a dress she had worn to an uncle’s wedding.”—Jill C. Shomer, American Photo Magazine, May-June 2014 issue

FIRST WEBB WORKSHOP IN POLAND

©Alex Webb from “The Suffering of Light,” Aperture and Thames and Hudson

“We do not really know what draws a human being out into the world. Is it curiosity? A hunger for experience? An addiction to wonderment? The man who ceases to be astonished is hollow, possessed of an extinguished heart. If he believes that everything has already happened, that he has seen it all, then something most precious has died within him—the delight in life.” ― the Polish writer Ryszard Kapuściński, one of Alex’s favorite writers

VIOLET ISLE: New Book in London

March 26, 2014

“There are two kinds of people in the world — mango people and papaya people,” my sister-in-law, the noted ornithological illustrator Sophie Webb, once told us with a smile.

Each morning in Havana, Alex and I would share breakfast. When it was in season, fresh papaya was Alex’s choice, fresh mango mine. After the meal, we’d go our separate ways — he to photograph the streets of Havana, I to visit yet another Cuban menagerie, which, in Havana was usually a collection of birds, from rooftop pigeon coops to fighting roosters, from commonly caged birds, such as lovebirds and parakeets, to a wilder variety, such as hawks or woodpeckers.

Both of us never ceased to be surprised by the generosity of the Cubans we met. No matter how poor they were, many invited us into their homes to offer us a cup of that rich dark café cubano sweetened by local azúcar.”—Rebecca Norris Webb, from “Hungry Still,” SLIDELUCK POTSHOW London’s new book.

So nice to see “Violet Isle” is in such good company in “Hungry Still,” a book celebrating SLIDELUCK POTSHOW London 5th anniversary with photos and recipes by photographers Cristina de Middel, Sebastian Liste, Phil Toledano, Bryan Schutmaat, among others.

Q. Jim Estrin, New York Times Lens Blog:

Had you ever been to Mississippi before? Was it similar to anything you had seen before or different?

A.  Alex Webb:

It was my first trip to Mississippi. I had photographed in some small towns in Alabama prior to visiting Mound Bayou; however, those towns were segregated — unlike Mound Bayou, there were no black town officials, no black police officers, and if there were black-owned businesses, they were in the black part of town.

Visiting Mound Bayou for the first time, I was completely unprepared for the intensity of the emotional experience of being welcomed and embraced by a culture so different than my own. I recall one moment when Ellie, the woman whom I first met at Smitty’s, suddenly turned to me, reached up and put her two hands on either side of my head and said, “I ain’t never touched the hair of a white man before.” Needless to say, as a young, white kid from Cambridge, Mass., I was stunned and deeply moved.
