Our take

Slant Rhymes is a beautiful photobook by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, bringing together a selection of photographs taken by the couple in the 30 years of their friendship, marriage and creative partnership. This book is an unfinished love poem and a conversation between the creative couple where their images are paired and ‘talk’ to each other. Alex Webb is a street photographer, photojournalist, and Magnum Photos member. He captures ambiguous and enigmatic moments in his vibrant colour photographs, often infused with beautiful light. Rebecca Norris Webb is a poet and photographer known for her subtle and emotional images. She sees photography as a form of visual poetry and often pairs her images with text, making them 'three-dimensional'. This book is a wonderful visual and poetic tribute to this couple’s creative collaboration throughout their lives.

Publisher's description

Slant Rhymes is a conversation between two world renowned photographers, Magnum photographer Alex Webb and poet and photographer Rebecca Norris Webb, a married creative couple who have authored 18 books.

Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs nearly 30-year friendship and later marriage and creative partnership, this group of 82 photographs are paired one of Alex's, one of Rebecca's to create a series of visual rhymes that talk to one another often at a slant and in intriguing and revealing ways.

"Sometimes we find our photographic slant rhymes share a similar palette or tone or geometry", writes Alex Webb in the introduction to the book. "Other times, our paired photographs strike a similar note often a penchant for surreal or surprising or enigmatic moments although often in two different keys".

Made in some 15 countries, these photographs many of which have never before been published are interwoven with short text pieces written by the Webbs while they were working together and apart. Taken together, the work forms a kind unfinished love poem, told at a slant.
