REBECCA NORRIS WEB: My Dakota
A project that began in 2005, Rebecca Norris Webb, originally a poet, set out to photograph her home state of South Dakota, a sparsely populated frontier state on the Great Plains. It is a landscape dominated by space and silence and solitude, by brutal wind and extreme weather. "I was trying to capture a more intimate and personal view of the West. I was trying to capture what all that space feels like to someone who grew up there. A year into the project, however, everything changed. One of my brothers died unexpectedly. It seemed all I could do was drive through the badlands and prairies and photograph. I began to wonder: Does loss have its own geography?" – Rebecca Norris Webb Closed Mondays; OPEN – Tuesday through Sunday: 12-4 p.m.

ALEX WEBB AND REBECCA NORRIS WEBB: Violet Isle
"Violet Isle" is the little-known name for Cuba inspired by the rich color of the soil there. A unique and enigmatic double portrait by photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb; Violet Isle, combines two separate photographic visions: Alex Webb's dramatic and graphic exploration of street life in Cuba; and Rebecca Norris Webb's fascination with the unique, quixotic collections of animals she discovered there in tiny zoos, pigeon societies, hand-painted natural history displays and quirky personal menageries. As Florida's nearest international neighbor, and as an area of long-standing museum interest and focus, Violet Isle offers the next intriguing chapter in the Southeast Museum of Photography's sustained exhibition record of Cuba. Closed Mondays; OPEN – Tuesday through Sunday: 12-4 p.m.
