Abstract:

"Renowned photographers and teachers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb guide readers on a creative journey through the world of street photography and the poetic image as a path toward finding and deepening a unique photographic vision. Based on their popular international workshop, this creative couple interweaves real-world insight with stories that reveal their own creative process and influences. They touch on a variety of photographic issues essential to photographers of all levels and backgrounds, including how to photograph in cultures other than your own; how to capture luminous, poetic images in the world; how to work with color in a way that adds emotion to photographs; how complexity and creative tension affect the frame; how to hone a personal vision; and how to shape a growing body of work in an intuitive and meaningful way, one that enriches not only picture-making but also your life. This book provides rare access to the teaching and artistic practice of two leading photographers and is an indispensable tool for students, teachers and anyone who wants to take more successful pictures"--Publisher's description.
