Summary

Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb have been photographing Brooklyn, one of the most dynamic and ethnically diverse places on the planet, for the past five years. While Alex Webb has traversed every corner of the borough, Rebecca Norris Webb photographed “the city within the city within the city,” the green heart of Brooklyn. Together, their photographs of Brooklyn tell a larger American story, one that touches on immigration, identity, and home.
