Rebecca Norris Webb, originally a poet and journalist, had her first NYC solo exhibition at Ricco/Maresca Gallery in 2006, the same year her first book, The Glass Between Us, was published with support from a Blue Earth Alliance Grant. Her series, which uses text and images to explore the complicated relationship between people and animals in cities, has also been included in several group exhibitions, including “Why Look at Animals?” at the George Eastman House. She is currently working on a series of photographs in the American West called My Dakota. Rebecca teaches photography workshops with Alex in the U.S., Italy, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Turkey, and Spain.
