FINDING YOUR VISION with Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

WEEKEND WORKSHOP @ LEICA STORE MIAMI, Friday evening January 17 thru Sunday afternoon  January 19, 2014

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,” Rebecca’s new third book, “My Dakota,” and their upcoming joint book on Rochester, film and time, “Memory City.”

Included in the workshop will be an editing exercise as well as an optional photography assignment or long-term project review. 

Space is limited.  For more information and to enroll online: http://www.leicastoremiami.com/collections/workshops-classes-and-trips/products/alex-webb-rebecca-norris-webb-workshop-finding-your-vision-fri-sat-sun-jan-17-19-2014

My Dakota: Reviewed in Orion Magazine

©Rebecca Norris Webb, “Ghost Mountain,” from “My Dakota” reviewed in the current issue of Orion Magazine, Nov./Dec. 2013

“If grief had a landscape, what shape would it take? Rebecca Norris Webb’s moving photographs of South Dakota, her home place, suggest the contours of such a shape, from portraits of an endless horizon to a close-up of a row of apples, bruised and scattered beside a country road.

Composed of 42 images and a few brief lines of handwritten text, My Dakota is both a monument to a place and an elegy for a person, the author’s brother, whose heart failed without warning in 2006.  The circumstances of loss find their way into this collection: there’s an urgent quality about those roadside apples and a suddenness captured in the taut muscles of a bird dog.  The most arresting of these photographs achieve their sense of alarm indirectly, or at least angularly, via a detail seen through a rearview mirror, a sliver of open curtain, a spill of light through trees.  Our landscapes contain every part of us, Webb seems to say, the broken and the whole.”—Scott Gast, Orion Magazine review of “My Dakota,” November/December 2013 issue

VIOLET ISLE: Review in Orion Magazine

April 25, 2010

Alex Webb, Havana, 2000, from "Violet Isle"

“Collaborative photography books are difficult to pull off –– maybe even more so by a husband-and-wife team, and especially when each is offering pictures (as opposed to one providing the text.)  Pick a popular, well-photographed subject like Cuba for even more of a challenge.  Violet Isle (Radius Books, 2009), by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, easily overcomes these difficulties.  Made from 11 trips to Cuba over 15 years, the book alternates between his and her images almost page by page, mixing Rebecca’s painterly vignettes with Alex’s harder-edged narrative into a single, deep, organically cohesive vision of this iconic island.” –– Orion Magazine, May-June 2010 issue, page 71
