This workshop will be about finding your own unique vision of New York City by using the camera to explore the city in a direct, spontaneous way.  Open to both serious amateurs and professionals alike, it is a workshop that will emphasize the development of your own personal way of seeing photographically.  This workshop will also be about learning how to edit your work intuitively, and also include discussions about how to take your photography to the next level.  The workshop will be taught by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, who between the two of them, have published 18 books.

Applications open: Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017 (if you’re interested, please apply soonest, because our workshops tend to fill in a week or two.)

If you’ve never taken a workshop from Alex and Rebecca, please email 10 small jpegs (72dpi; 1080 pixels on the longest side) that represent who you are as a photographer, or direct us to a series or two on your website or other online link.  If you work in a series, please include a selection from one or two personal projects –– the work that represents your passions, your obsessions. (We aren’t interested in photographs done simply to satisfy an editor or art director or client.)  Also include a short description of why you’d like to take this workshop and what or where you’d like to photograph for the week (no more than 150 words in a word doc). Also include a short bio (not more than 100 words) that includes where you live and something about your relationship to photography.




“We both embrace a kind of surrealism, although seemingly in two different keys: Rebecca’s more in the spirit of Bach’s D Minor Partita that she so loves, mine more in the spirit of the blues, as in Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign.”—Alex Webb, from “A Marriage of Lives of Photographs,” a Q&A with Jim Estrin on the New York Times Lens Blog with Rebecca the new joint book, Slant Rhymes, released this week in the US and Canada from La Fabrica.
