Jun 5 - Jun 7 2020

Where:

Online


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. A workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, it will taught by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, a creative team who often edit projects and books together––including most recently their jointbook, Brooklyn, published by Aperture, and its accompanying exhibition, “The City Within,” taking place at the Museum of the City of New York through spring 2021.
Included in the workshop will be an editing exercise, as well as two assignments (either photographing assignments or editing/sequencing assignments).
