ALEX WEBB & REBECCA NORRIS WEBB’S FINDING YOUR VISION WORKSHOP: SEATTLE

Location: PCNW (Photo Center North West)

Friday evening, Feb. 6, 2014, thru Sunday afternoon, Feb. 8, 2014

RELATED EVENT: Friday, Feb. 6, 6:30-8:30pm: Slide talk: “Slant Rhymes: The Photographs of Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb,” followed by a Q&A and book signing. This event is free and open to the public.

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 new joint books, “Memory City: and “Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photographer and the Poetic Image.”

Included in the workshop will be an editing exercise and a choice between an optional photography/editing assignment or long-term project review, as well as an optional pre-workshop assignment. For more information –– including workshop fees, how to enroll— please visit: http://pcnw.org/education/workshops/featured/master-workshop-finding-your-vision/

NOTE: This is a workshop for photographers who collaborate with the world, not for those who dramatically alter their photographs digitally.

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 a unique vision, to discovering and completing a long-term project, to translating a body of work into books and exhibitions. This is a workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, taught by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, a creative team which often edits projects and books together. This includes their two recent joint books Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image (Aperture, 2014) and Memory City (2014); Alex’s The Suffering of Light (Aperture, 2011); and Rebecca’s My Dakota (2012).

This weekend workshop will begin with reviews of each participant’s work on Saturday morning, a process that will spark a larger discussion about various photographic issues, including the process of photographing spontaneously and intuitively; how to edit photographs; how to work in cultures different from one’s own; and how long-term projects can evolve into books and exhibitions. The first day will end with a group editing exercise and an optional photography or editing assignment. Sunday will be dedicated to reviewing each participant’s assignment, as well as a series of presentations about bookmaking and exhibitions that will end with an informal Q&A session with the Webbs. Lunch will be served both days.
