BOOK WEEKEND@RADIUS: Alex Webb, Rebecca Norris Webb, & David Chickey
Friday evening, March 22, 2013 thru Sunday afternoon, March 24, 2013, Radius Books offices, 227 Place Ave., Suite W., Santa Fe, NM
This intensive weekend bookmaking workshop is open to anyone who is passionate about a photography project that he or she has been working on –– from serious amateurs to seasoned professionals, from documentary photographers to art photographers, from those photographing a theme, a place, or an issue to those working on a more personal series of photographs of family or friends. This workshop will help each participant learn how to take his or her project to the next level.
The workshop will be taught by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, a creative team who’ve edited seven books together — including Rebecca’s My Dakota, Alex’s The Suffering of Light, and their joint books Violet Isle and the upcoming Memory City —and by noted designer David Chickey, Radius’s publisher and creative director who has designed photo books for more than 20 publishers and museums over the last 15 years.
Through an individual assignment tailored for each participant, presentations, discussions, and an editing exercise, the Webbs and Chickey will explore with you a variety of book-related topics over this intensive weekend, including such issues as how to discover the heart of your photography project, how to edit and sequence a photo book intuitively, how to figure out what’s left to photograph for your project, how to choose a writer, title and cover image, how to work with a designer, what to expect when you go on press, and how prints in a book differ from prints on a wall.
To apply: photographers must submit 10 small jpgs (72 dpi, 8 inches on longest side) or a link to your project online, and a short statement about the project (no more than 250 words), as a word doc to the Webbs: email@example.com Former Webb Workshop participants are invited to apply without submitting a formal application if Alex and Rebecca are familiar with your project. IF YOU ARE 27 OR YOUNGER AND WISH TO APPLY FOR A TUITION-FREE RADIUS BOOKS SCHOLARSHIP, PLEASE NOTE THIS IN YOUR APPLICATION.
For more information about the workshop, please contact Alex and Rebecca: firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Magnum website.

“Grieving after her brother’s death, Norris Webb goes on a quest, returning to South Dakota, where she grew up…She probes symbols of time passing: apples fallen in the dirt, weathered paint on the wall of a motel, a field of sunflowers dried and browned in the autumn. The images are personal but never obscure. Norris Webb’s spare, poetic text speaks to anyone who has experienced the puzzlement and struggle that comes with loss.”
—Holly Stuart Hughes, editor, Photo District News, from “Time’s Best of 2012: The Photobooks We Loved.”
