Friday, March 22, from 6-7:30 pm, join Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb for a slideshow and discussion of their work. Between the two of them, these creative partners have published some dozen books and exhibited work internationally.
This joint public slide talk will feature a selection of photographs from their monographs, including Alex’s most recent book, The Suffering of Light: Thirty Years of Photographs, and Rebecca’s new book, My Dakota, which interweaves her spare text and lyrical photographs from her home state of South Dakota. In addition, Alex and Rebecca will also discuss the process of making collaborative books and exhibitions, including Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba (a Radius book and exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), and their upcoming Radius book, Memory City.
There will be a question and answer session following the presentation led by David Chickey, noted designer and creative director of Radius Books, who’s worked with the Webbs on four books.
The event is free and located at Tipton Hall at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
We’ve just received advance copies of three of our newest titles co-published with David Zwirner. These monographs showcase sophisticated works on paper by Suzan Frecon, the dynamic sculptures and installations of Fred Sandback, and a retrospective look at the oeuvre of Alan Uglow. The books have been exquisitely printed and bound in Italy, and they are on their way to our warehouses and distributors.
Award-winning photographers and bookmakers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb will be joining David Chickey from Radius Books on March 22nd-24th for an intensive photobook workshop in Santa Fe.
Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb have edited seven books together — including Rebecca’s My Dakota, Alex’s The Suffering of Light, and their joint books Violet Isle and the upcoming Memory City. Designer David Chickey, Radius Books’ publisher and creative director, has designed photo books for more than 20 publishers and museums over the last 15 years. This weekend workshop is open to anyone who is passionate about a photography project that he or she has been working on—including serious amateurs and seasoned professionals, from documentary photographers to art photographers, from those photographing a theme, a place, or an issue to those working on a more personal series of photographs of family or friends. This workshop will help each participant learn how to take his or her project to the next level.
Through individual assignments tailored for each participant, presentations, discussions, and an editing exercise, the Webbs and Chickey will explore a variety of book-related topics over this intensive weekend, including such issues as how to discover the heart of your photography project, how to edit and sequence a photo book intuitively, how to figure out what’s left to photograph for your project, how to choose a writer, title and cover image, how to work with a designer, what to expect when you go on press, and how prints in a book differ from prints on a wall.
To apply photographers must submit 10 small jpgs (72 dpi, 8 inches on longest side) or a link to your project online, and a short statement about the project (no more than 250 words), as a word doc to the Webbs: email@example.com. Former Webb Workshop participants are invited to apply without submitting a formal application if Alex and Rebecca are familiar with your project. The workshop costs $500.
IF YOU ARE 27 OR YOUNGER AND WISH TO APPLY FOR A TUITION-FREE RADIUS BOOKS SCHOLARSHIP, PLEASE NOTE THIS IN YOUR APPLICATION.
For more information about the workshop, please contact Alex and Rebecca: firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Magnum website.
