“My Dakota” Limited Ed., Radius Book Workshop

June 29, 2011

Before we head out to photograph for the summer — Alex south to Peru and Rebecca west to South Dakota — we just wanted to thank our online photographic community for all your support this past year.  And we’d like to give  a special thanks to all of you who have reserved one of the “My Dakota” limited editions, which will help Radius publish Rebecca’s book next spring.

In addition, we hope some of you can join us for the Book Weekend Workshop with Radius with Radius publisher and creative director, the acclaimed book designer David Chickey, and noted photo book expert, Radius book editor, and coauthor of the new book, Publish Your Photography Book, Darius Himes, in Santa Fe the third weekend in September this year. This intensive weekend workshop is a great way to explore what’s the next step for your long-term project as well as an additional way to support Rebecca’s “My Dakota” book.

Please stay in touch over the summer, and we hope to see some of you at Alex’s opening at the Stephen Daiter Gallery in Chicago on Friday, September 9th, and at our joint show at the Robert Klein Gallery in Boston on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 17th.  Looking forward to working with the photographers of our most advanced and intensive project workshop, Photo Project Workshop 2011 at Caption Gallerythe last week in October, that will culminate in a book dummy, a designed cover of the book, and a show at the Caption Gallery after the workshop.  (See below for more details; as of July 1, two places are left). —Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

“MY DAKOTA” LIMITED EDITION

Edition of 30 (first 25 @$500; last five @$900)

As of July 1st, 22 of the limited editions have sold.  Thanks, everyone, for your generous support of Rebecca’s book. We couldn’t do it without you.  I’m about to send out the second round of emails.  If you haven’t yet heard from me, feel free to contact me directly to see the pdf of all eight print options (including the three in this blog posting). Thanks, again. — Alex  (my direct email: rnorriswebb@yahoo.com)
