On Street Photography and the Poetic Image: Review

©

“Alex Webb and his wife and artistic partner Rebecca Norris Webb share stories of their artistic processes in this excellent book. Structured as a series of short reflections with images, the authors cover subjects like colour, emotion, composition, street photography, sources of inspiration, research, mistakes, serendipity and creative tension. I was particularly moved by Norris Webb’s thoughts on loss and her project My Dakota. (And her story about the antelope was hilarious.) The book even includes an extensive recommended reading list at the end. If you want to be inspired in your creative process, read Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image. I already want to read this book again.”—Jenny Montgomery, Canadian publication, Photo Life
