OUTSIDE THE FRAME: Alex and Rebecca

April 19, 2010

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 ¬†Lastly, Rebecca has also included a second photograph from Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, heretofore unpublished online, a portrait of the man she met and talks about in her audio piece.—Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb
