We’d like to thank RADIUS BOOKS creative director David Chickey for his help on press in Hong Kong for the printing of our upcoming “Memory City” book.  Always a delight to hold that first unbound copy in one’s hands…We hope in the next few weeks to have photos of the first bound copy.—Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

“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
