Alex Webb: Dislocations (Hardcover)
On Our Shelves Now
Newly reimagined edition of Alex Webb's now-classic and long out-of-print Dislocations Dislocations presents a contemporary update of Alex Webb's long out-of-print and highly sought title, first published in 1998 as an experiment in alternative book making. This newly reimagined edition brings together pictures from the many disparate locations over Webb's oeuvre, meditating on the act of photography as a form of dislocation in itself. Webb returned to the idea of dislocation during the pandemic, looking at images produced in the twenty years since the original publication--as well as looking back at that first edition. Dislocations expands a prized limited edition with unpublished images that speak to today's sense of displacement. As a series of pictures that would have been impossible to create in a world dominated by closed borders and disrupted travel, it continues to resonate as the world resets.
