Friday, May 4, 2018-Wednesday May 9, 2018

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.

SLANT RHYMES NOW AVAILABLE IN THE US!

November 5, 2016

SLANT RHYMES is now available in the US!  Your can order online at DAP here.

Slant Rhymes is a photographic conversation between two renowned authors and artists, Magnum photographer Alex Webb and poet and photographer Rebecca Norris Webb. Selected from photographs taken during the Webbs’ nearly 30-year relationship (a friendship evolving into a marriage and creative partnership), this group of 80 photographs is laid out in pairs—one by Alex, one by Rebecca—to create a series of visual rhymes that talk to one another, often at a slant and in intriguing and revealing ways.

“Sometimes we find our photographic slant rhymes share a similar palette or tone or geometry,” writes Alex Webb in the introduction to the book. “Other times, our paired photographs strike a similar note—often a penchant for surreal or surprising or enigmatic moments—although often in two different keys.”

In this volume, the artists’ photographs—many of which are published here for the first time—are interwoven with short text pieces by the Webbs. A deeply personal book, beautifully produced as an intimate clothbound edition with a tipped-on cover, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb: Slant Rhymes is an unfinished love poem, told at a slant.

—“Il y a quelque chose qui me fascine dans ces endroits où à un moment vous pouvez avoir l’impression que vous êtes profondément au coeur du Mexique, et une rue plus loin cela ressemble à une étrange extension des États-Unis.”—Alex Webb from interview with photographer David Belay on Yonder (in French).

—“Above all, what drives me is simple curiosity: to see what different worlds look and feel like. The only way I can get a sense of a place is to wander its streets.”—Alex Webb from interview on Magnum Photos about “Houston’s Diversity is America’s Future” in Pacific Standard Magazine, July issue.

—”And I think that when we are working on a project, there are moments of charge or spark or sublimity that really make the other moments resonate. For me, one of those moments was a photograph I took on Lake Geneva, of blue netted bunting fluttering in the wind, with a backdrop of the blue lake and the blue sky. It felt like the landscape had opened up in a way quite important to my larger project. I know this is a photograph of mine you particularly love, and I think it’s because you recognize that it springs something open.”—Teju Cole, from Rebecca’s L’arte di Partenza column, “Three Questions with Teju Cole.”

LA CALLE REVIEWS

“One never gets the sense that the photographs of Alex Webb’s LA CALLE (Aperture, $60), a collection of streetscapes taken in Mexico between 1975 and 2007, were thought out much in advance. The pictures here present hectic (or eerily still) scenes in medias res, in which something has just happened, or is perhaps about to happen.  Webb thrives on this uncertainty, creating compositions that give the impression that he has just shown up, and is in the process of trying to figure the situation out. The viewer, too, strives to piece together the overload of information: When looking at these brightly colored photographs, it can be difficult to settle on a focal point, or to see how the seemingly unrelated story lines interact.  A singe shot may show vendors, lovers, a bicyclist, children playing, and dogs. The mood can be tough to pin down, too, as people’s faces register wildly different emotions, ranging from laughter to fear to tears.  While each photo here looks curiously at the collective action it presents, the volume as a whole concerns itself with even more far-reaching connections.  As Webb asks: What is the relationship between these portraits, one of which shows a man who appears to have been shot in the street, and the baroque drug violence that has erupted in the country? Webb resists definite answers, but his images suggest, in addition to a celebration of life on the street, a certain volatility—homelessness, poverty, and areas hemmed in by walls.  One photo captures a foot blurring in movement as its owner disappears over a fence.  True to form, Webb leaves us wondering what is being fled, and whether this was a successful escape.”—Michael Miller, from Bookforum’s Roundup of Best Art Books of 2016.

 “In 1978, Webb took a picture of a boy staring warily in a Mexican graveyard, with a horse silhouetted high on a hill in the distance. The image is typical of the Magnum photographer’s three decades of work in Mexico, an engine of both awe and empathy. Webb shot mostly in color, with an eye for hot reds, sky blues, and dusty terra cottas. But in nearly every image such brightness is offset by deep shadow. Some compositions are as stark and strange as anything by de Chirico, but, more typically, the frame is alive with incident: four gesturing figures are anchored by the glass cannisters of a cold-drink stand; three women bend down in grief around a body lying crumpled in the gutter.”—New Yorker review of La Calle, September 2016

“Connection in photography can take many forms. While one typically thinks of the connection in photographing people one knows, there can also be a kind of intimacy with a place or a culture itself. As a street photographer, it is this latter connection that intrigues me. Over the years, I’ve learned that each culture demands its own unique and complicated approach—often with many nuanced variations—in order to photograph the life of its streets. For instance in Mumbai, people sometimes seem so interested in strangers, one may later discover smiling faces peering into the edges of one’s photographs. However, in a city such as Kochi in southern India where I took this photograph, one may also encounter unexpected quieter moments.

Ultimately, no matter how gently and respectfully one tries to photograph in a culture other than one’s own, how long a street photographer can linger is largely thanks to the grace of others.”—Alex Webb

“[Webb’s] language is akin to painting, at which he actually tried his hand before turning to photography. Among painters, he is particularly fond of Giorgio de Chirico and Georges Braque: the former, for his surrealism, his dream-writing, and his metaphysical oeuvre; the latter, for his chromatic boldness and innovation.—from “Alex Webb: Of Light and Shadow” by Jonas Cuenin of L’oeil de la Photographie.

Throughout Mexico, life spills onto the streets, as sidewalks and avenues become a place to gather, learn or entertain. Alex Webb was first drawn to the richness and complexity that plays out in the country’s “calles,” or streets, over three decades ago.

“I was startled and fascinated by this country, so close to the United States and yet so far culturally,” Webb, who grew up in New England, told NBC News. “I was intrigued by the vibrancy — the sense of energy — of life on the street in Mexico.”—NBC News article, “Street Photographer Captures Mexico’s Complexity Over 30 Years” by Natalia Jimenez.
