Boston Weekend Workshop with Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb
July 17, 2012
by Alex Webb
Do you know where you're going next with your photography –– or where it’s taking you? This intensive weekend workshop will help photographers begin to understand their own distinct way of seeing the world. It will also help photographers figure out their next step photographically –– from deepening their own unique vision to the process of discovering and making a long-term project that they’re passionate about, as well as the process of how long-term projects evolve into books and exhibitions. A workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, it will taught by Alex and Rebecca, a creative team who often edit projects and books together –– including their joint book and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, exhibition, "Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba,” Alex’s recent Aperture book, “The Suffering of Light,” and Rebecca’s new Radius book, “My Dakota.”
Included in the workshop will be an editing exercise as well as an optional photography assignment and long-term project review. For more information –– including how to enroll and daily schedule –– please contact Maja at the Robert Klein Gallery: email@example.com
NOTE: This is a workshop for photographers who collaborate with the world, not for those who dramatically alter their photographs digitally.
