Just finished a weekend learning from some of the "greats" of the photo-book world: David Chickey, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb. The three looked at all the participants' work, edited their projects down and sequenced them in two sessions. It was amazing to watch as they worked together, nixing and rearranging prints, talking about possible holes in work, and coming up with possible titles, text and format. It was brilliant.

Three great minds and hearts, to be sure. Look them up:
