A few years ago, Pico Iyer wrote, in the afterword to our joint Cuba book, “Violet Isle,” that our work sometimes rhymes. Alex and I love that notion. At times, I can pinpoint these subtle echoes or slant rhymes—such as a shared palette or an affinity for surreal or surprising moments. Other times, why two of our photographs work together remains somewhat mysterious.”—Rebecca Norris Webb from “Slant Rhymes: Teju Cole and the Webb in conversation about “Memory City” and “On Street Photography and the Poetic Image”
