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. 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A Marriage of Lives and Photos.--James Estrin "New York Times Lens Blog "
Slant Rhymes, a new collaborative book by the photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, amounts to a "long, elliptical, unfinished love poem.--Craig Hubert "Hyperallergic "
In Slant Rhymes, pairs of photographs by Webb and Norris Webb feed each other like poems in a collection...--Michael Juliani "BOMB "
Every spread contrasts a picture apiece by each of them, and the connections between them are mostly delicate and elusive.--Luc Sante "The New York Times "
By the end of this modest but exquisite book, even viewers unfamiliar with either of the Webbs will have a pretty good idea of their individual strengths and tendencies, as well as of, as it were, their house style.--The New York Times
