Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs' nearly 30-year relationship, this group of 80 paired photographs creates an affectionate play of visual rhymes

Slant Rhymes is a photographic conversation between two renowned authors and artists, Magnum photographer Alex Webb and poet and photographer Rebecca Norris Webb. Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs' nearly 30-year relationship (a friendship evolving into a marriage and creative partnership), this group of 80 photographs is laid out in pairs--one by Alex, one by Rebecca--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."

In this volume, the artists' photographs--many of which are published here for the first time--are interwoven with short text pieces by the Webbs. A deeply personal book, beautifully produced as an intimate clothbound edition with a tipped-on cover, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb: Slant Rhymes is an unfinished love poem, told at a slant.
