Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb: Violet Isle

Back in print, this multilayered portrait of "the violet isle"-a little known name for Cuba inspired by the rich color of the soil there- presents an engaging, at times unsettling document of a vibrant and vulnerable land. It combines to separate photographic visions: Alex Webb's exploration of street life, with his attuned and complex attention to detail, and Rebecca Norris Webb's fascination with the unique, quixotic collections of animals she discovered there, from tiny zoos and pigeon societies to hand-painted natural history displays and quirky personal menageries.
