The Streets of Havana - A Workshop with Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

THE STREETS OF HAVANA
With Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb

Jan. 22-29, 2012; possible second session: Jan. 29 to Feb. 5, 2012

Please join us for this week-long photography workshop in the Caribbean’s grandest city –– Havana –– a place that seems caught out of time. Mysterious, colorful, complicated, this ambiguous city defies easy definitions –– at once alluring yet confounding, vibrant yet vulnerable, engaging yet unsettling. What better way to piece together your impressions of this city of contradictions that with a camera?

The workshop will be led by the creative team –– Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb –– who have made some 11 trips to Cuba, which culminated in their book and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, exhibition: “Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba.” Together they will help you discover your own unique vision of this remarkable city filled with music, light, and home to one of the most vibrant cultures in the Caribbean.
