MY DAKOTA: New Yorker Review


©Rebecca Norris Webb, “Blackbirds” from “My Dakota” at Ricco/Maresca Gallery, NYC, thru August 17th and NDMOA thru Aug. 7th.

The photographer and poet grew up in South Dakota and sees the state’s landscape through the lens of grief for a brother who died. But that fact is not immediately apparent in these big, strong color photographs of sprinting deer, drooping sunflowers, and wide-open spaces. They offer an insider’s view, full of personal history, much of which remains coded. “Does loss have its own geography?” Webb has written on one of the gallery walls, and her camera circles the question obsessively, whether landing on a barbed-wire fence trailing torn plastic bags or a buffalo, glimpsed in a side-view mirror. Through Aug. 17.
