Gallery Artist Alex Webb Featured in Time LightBox, The New York Times, and The Guardian

With his exhibition Memory City showing at Gallery R in Rochester, New York, Time LightBox, The New York Times Lens, and The Guardian take a closer look at Alex Webb's work that uses the very medium that shaped the culture of the city it was produced in.

"When Alex Webb was photographing at the Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, N.Y., a man turned to the Magnum photographer, looked at his digital Leica and said: 'You know, I designed the sensor for that camera.'

For many people in Rochester, Kodak has always been more than just a photography company. '[Everyone] has either worked for Kodak, or had a family member or friend who worked for the company,' notes Rebecca Norris Webb, who, with her husband, has just released Memory City (Radius Books, 2014), a photography book about the impact Kodak has had on the upstate New York city of 200,ooo." - Time LightBox
