SAVANNAH, GEORGIA: “IN PASSING: American Landscape Photography” at SCAD Museum of Art thru September 27th

With work by Ansel Adams, Aaron Brumbelow, Tom Fischer, Jeff Rich, Victoria Sambunaris, and Rebecca Norris Webb, curated by SCAD head curator of exhibitions Storm Janse van Rensburg:

“Spanning from intimate and subjective to more scientific and objective approaches, the exhibition “In Passing: American Landscape Photography” invites the viewer to consider our complex relations to the land and environment as consumers, observers and participants in its constant flux…

Rebecca Norris Webb’s “My Dakota” takes a poetic track and is concerned with memory, time and geographies of loss. Images from the series trace the artist’s return to where she came of age and attempt to capture a personal and intimate view of the American West. The vantage point from a traveling car is central to her photographs in the exhibition, providing a fleeting yet personal engagement with the environment.”—from “In Passing” at SCAD Museum of Art

FALL WORKSHOPS

——THE ART OF EDITING: Thursday Oct. 28-Sunday Nov. 1, 2015

Do you know how to listen to your photographs—including how they talk to one another—in order to select and sequence your work? Learn the challenging ART OF EDITING and sequencing your photographs in this five-day intensive workshop in New York City. This workshop is open to both serious amateurs as well as seasoned photographers who may be working on a long-term project or book. This intimate workshop is limited to 12 photographers.

Your workshop teachers are Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, a creative couple who often edit and sequence their work together for magazines, exhibitions, and books, including their two recent collaborative books, Memory City, and Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image. The Webbs will begin this intensive workshop by looking at a series of unedited photographs from each workshop participant, which could be from a recent trip you’ve taken or an event (such as a wedding, parade, or festival), or perhaps an assignment or long-term project. There will be two options for the second half of the workshop: participants can choose either: 1) to photograph and edit new work from Halloween weekend in NYC 2015; or, 2) to continue to edit and sequence a long-term project or book. FOR MORE INFORMATION, INCLUDING HOW TO APPLY:  webbnorriswebb@gmail.com
