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

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE:

TWO QUESTIONS: On Last Pictures and On Grieving

May 2, 2012

©Alex Webb, Erie, Pennsylvania, 2010, last photograph of "The Suffering of Light" (Aperture, Contrasto, Thames and Hudson, 2010)

REBECCA NORRIS WEBB:  During a recent lecture in Singapore, you talked a little about the last photographs in your books, which often, in hindsight, have a kind of importance you didn’t realize at the time you were editing the book.  Would you talk about this again, specifically in regards to your last book, “The Suffering of Light”?

ALEX WEBB: For me, sometimes the last picture in a book points the way towards the next book or project: the last picture in my first book, Hot Light/Half-Made Worlds, a photograph from Haiti of a child in a sea of fire, seems to lead directly into the turmoil of Under A Grudging Sun, my second book.  

The last picture in The Suffering of Light, unlike the bulk of photographs in the book, which are from outside of the United States, was taken in Erie, Pennsylvania, when Rebecca and I were making one of our many trips from NY to South Dakota so she could continue working on her book, My Dakota. As we’ve made these trips, I’ve become intrigued by the notion of photographing more in the US, especially in the declining industrial region that stretches from western NY and Pennsylvania across the midwest.  It’ s something Rebecca and I have been talking about doing together.

So it was very gratifying last week for both of us to spend time in this region photographing in Rochester NY as part of the Magnum “House of Pictures” project.  We hope in July to return to Rochester to finish what we think will be a small book, Memory City. And perhaps the last photograph of that book will lead us to our next U.S. city to photograph?

SARAH RHODES for Timemachine Magazine:  Did your pictures start to change once you decided to make your South Dakota project into an elegy for your brother?

RNW: A few years ago, I remember showing the photographs to Linda Hasselstrom, a South Dakota rancher, who besides being a poet and essayist is an insightful editor, as well as a woman who’s experienced the loss of a husband.  During one of her Windbreak House Writing Retreats at her ranch near Hermosa, South Dakota.  I was trying to figure out what I had left to photograph and said to her, “Linda, I see summer, fall, and winter in these photographs, but not spring.”

“When you’re grieving, there isn’t any spring,” she replied.

MEMORY CITY: A Thank You

April 29, 2012

©Alex Webb, Installation of work-in-progress of "Memory City" (by Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb) at the "House of Pictures" works-in-progress reception at the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, NY, Saturday evening, April 28th, 2012

Rebecca and I would like to thank everyone who’s been following our making of “Memory City,” which we now think –– with the addition of one or two more trips to Rochester –– may one day be a small book.  We are hoping to make our second trip this July.

As many of you already know, “Memory City” is connected to a larger Magnum project in Rochester called “House of Pictures,” so we’d like to give a special thanks to my Magnum colleagues who participated in the “House of Pictures” –– Alec Soth, Larry Towell, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Bruce Gilden, Donovan Wylie, Jim Goldberg, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Chien-Chi Chang, and Martin Parr.

Additionally, we couldn’t have made it this far in our creative journey without the help of a whole community of people: the Visual Studies Workshop, the George Eastman House Museum especially photography curator Alison Nordstrom, Rick Hock and Claire Wearn, the master printer Ed Praus,  the Magnum Photos staff, the photography department at RIT with a special thanks to the photographer Willie Osterman and our invaluable, tireless and enthusiastic production team ––RIT students Madison McKenna, Amanda Webster, Christian Whitworth, and Brenda Bingham –– and, lastly, and perhaps most importantly, all the people of Rochester who were gracious enough to invite us into their homes and into their lives.––Alex Webb

MEMORY CITY: Exposures 7 and 8

––7––

This contact sheet was printed by Ed Praus, one of a dying breed of master printers who’s worked in Rochester, NY,  –– home of Eastman Kodak and RIT ––for more than 25 years…

I guess I identify with dying breeds, being one of those photographers who hasn’t yet made the switch to digital.  There’s something about the tactile quality of working with film that I love.  (You can even see it in the words surrounding the process, beginning with the word, “film” itself, which also means “a thin covering or coating” –– and with the word, “contact.”)  Even if I’ve never liked changing film in the rain, not to mention Rochester’s late spring snow.

Yet, what I do like about working with film, unlike working digitally, is that something tangible is left behind –– a piece of film that occupied the same place and time and perhaps bad weather as the photographer.  Even if film is nothing more than the flimsiest of materials.  Like those silk or taffeta or organza dresses at the back of a woman’s closet, film has accompanied us to dance after dance, wedding after wedding, anniversary after anniversary, funeral after funeral.  No matter the weather.—Rebecca Norris Webb

This morning –– taking a break from photographing in a Rochester spring snow storm –– Alex and I decided to make our first pairing of the project.  (Even on a relatively clear afternoon in Rochester –– the City of Epic Weather –– you can see evidence of wind in these two photographs…)

Alex has just left to photograph the Godowsky house –– where one of the inventors of Kodachrome lived in the 1930’s with his wife, the singer and painter, Frances Gershwin, whose noted brothers, Ira and George, often played for –– and with ––the couple (Godowsky was also an accomplished violinist).

Anyway, Alex will be photographing the historic house with one of those last rolls of Kodachrome –– which will later be processed as black and white by one of Rochester’s last master printers, Ed Praus, another artist in his own right.––Rebecca Norris Webb

MEMORY CITY: Rochester in 36 Exposures

April 18, 2012

Alex and Rebecca's Kodak Express Heading to Rochester's House of Pictures

Until the end of April, Rebecca and I will be working on a joint project in Rochester, NY, which will be part of a larger Magnum project, “House of Pictures,”  a continuation of their “Postcards from America” project.

As two photographers who have long used Kodak film –– for me, Kodachrome; for Rebecca, Portra –– we both like the idea of  exploring Rochester, a city which has long been home of one of the U.S.’s most famous companies, Eastman Kodak, whose future –– and perhaps the future of film ––  is now in question.  We’re tentatively calling the project, “Memory City: Rochester in 36 Exposures,” and we’ll see where our creative journey leads us.

For those of you who’d like to follow our Rochester project on the blog, we’d greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions and support, which you can post in the comments section at the end of this column. We will also post photographs occasionally on the House of Pictures tumblr site, which is also a good place to see some of the work of the other Magnum photographers involved with the project: Martin Parr, Alec Soth, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Bruce Gilden, Donovan Wylie, Alessandra Sanguinettii, Larry Towell, and Jim Goldberg, with Chien-Chi Chang documenting the project with a video camera.––Alex Webb

“This leads me to another very, very important aspect of photobook making: You’re almost always better off involving other people. Maybe you’re a genius, maybe you can do it all on your own. Chances are you are not. Actually, it’s very likely you’re not. And even if you are a genius, then you’re genius enough to know that you need to involve other people.”––Joerg Colberg, March 13, 2012,  Conscientious Extended
