From the sunshine state : photographs of Florida by Alex Webb( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renowned photographer Alex Webb captures in this volume the unique atmosphere of Florida: the high camp/fashion world of Miami Beach, the Latin American world of South Florida, and the leisure world of vacationers, but also the worlds of migrant laborers and new immigrants, of suburbanites and rural peoples. This eclectic and occasionally funny collection reveals a different side of "the Sunshine State," a side usually hidden behind picture-perfect beaches and pristine

Violet isle by Alex Webb( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The Violet Isle" is a little-known nickname for Cuba, inspired by its richly colored soil - one of the many qualities that make the country so seductive to photographers. This handsomely designed, slipcased edition offers an engaging, at times unsettling document of a country that, for the past 50 years, has remained in an economic, political, cultural and ecological bubble, isolated from the rest of the world (though it is unlikely to stay that way for much longer). The 70 images collected here are a collaboration between Magnum photographer Alex Webb, who captures Cuba's street life with his trademark attention to detail and color, and Rebecca Norris Webb, who focuses on the unique, quixotic collection of animals she found there. This volume is an insightful blend of two different photographic aesthetics. The famous travel writer Pico Iyer provides an accompanying essay."--Jacket
Making country furniture by Alex Webb( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memory City by Alex Webb( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb take an elegiac look at Rochester, New York. For this project, Alex took images with his last rolls of Kodachrome, a formerly vibrant color film that can now only be processed as black-and-white. The resulting photos have a weathered quality akin to a fading memory. Alex also took to the streets of Rochester and shot in digital color--work that punctuates the black and white work with images from his signature style. Rebecca, who still uses film for all her work, responded to the medium's uncertain future by creating an elegiac refrain of color still lifes and portraits of Rochester women past and present. Woven into the book are quotes by many of the famous writers and thinkers who have been connected to Rochester, including women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony, abolitionist Frederick Douglass, and poets John Ashbery and Ilya Kaminsky. And the authors have also created a timeline on the cultural history of the city that traces the evolution of a once-vibrant and now complex city."--
Un divan à New York by Chantal Akerman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Harriston ist ein renommierter Psychoanalytiker in New York, doch die endlosen Lamentos seiner Patienten haben ihn ausgelaugt. Er gibt spontan eine Anzeige auf und tauscht sein nobles Apartment an der Upper East Side mit der Wohnung der Pariser Tänzerin Beatrice Saulnier. Diesen Entschluss bereut er bald, als er ihr marodes Zimmer sieht. Außerdem wird seine ersehnte Ruhe durch Anrufe von Beatrices Verehrern gestört. Als dann noch ein Wasserrohr bricht, reist Henry überstürzt nach New York zurück. Geschockt muss er feststellen, dass Beatrice sich inzwischen mit ihrer Freundin Anne nicht nur bestens in seiner Wohnung eingelebt hat, sondern auch noch die Therapie seiner ahnungslosen Patienten übernimmt. Das Erschreckendste daran ist für Henry, dass es diesen seither deutlich besser zu gehen scheint. Henry will der Sache auf den Grund gehen und stellt sich Beatrice inkognito als neuer Patient vor. Durch sie findet Henry plötzlich Zugang zu lange verschütteten Schuldgefühlen und Ängsten. Beatrice verliebt sich in Henry, doch Anne warnt sie davor, die "Projektion" von Gefühlen miss zu verstehen und so die Therapie ihres "Patienten" zu gefährden. Quelle: 3sat,online

2 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Webb introduces the vibrant personalities who populate the Mexico/U.S. border. He captures the odd panorama of the border - comical peddlers making deals with amused tourists, U.S. servicemen in search of tequila, and Mexicans furtively looking to get stateside. Many are caught, but they merely try again when released. The border is a constant flurry of activity which represents different things to different people - depending on which side you are on
