Please join me in congratulating Rebecca on her first photograph in the April issue of National Geographic.  Appropriately it’s from her book “My Dakota,” and, coincidentally, it just happens to be my favorite photograph in the book.  And how nice our work happens to be in the same issue. —Alex Webb

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 joint book and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, exhibition, Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba, Alex’s recent Aperture book, The Suffering of Light, and Rebecca’s new third book, My Dakota, which will be exhibited this summer at Ricco/Maresca Gallery, in New York City (June 20-Aug. 17), and the North Dakota Museum of Art, Grand Forks, ND (June 5-Aug. 6).
