NEW ROME WORKSHOP: Do you know where you’re going next with your photography –– or where it’s taking you?  This intensive two-day workshop, Nov. 14 and Nov. 15,  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. 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 Alex’s new fall monograph, La Calle, and Rebecca’s monograph, My Dakota, which will be reprinted by Radius this fall with an Italian co-edition by Postcart.


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