Quote of the Month

"Think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know? It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways."

— Duane Michals

Workshops Around the World

Perú in Book Form: Cusco during Semana Santa
with Daniel Milnor and Adam L. Weintraub
March 27 - April 5

Nestled in the Andes of Perú at a little over 11,000 feet, Cusco retains powerful bonds with its indigenous past as the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Thanks to Adam and Daniel's personal connections and local knowledge, we enjoy extraordinary opportunities to observe and photograph the processions, the parades, the symbolism and the spectacle of Holy Week in a deeply spiritual community. Documentary photography enables practitioners to completely immerse themselves in their projects, eventually forming an in-depth body of work or storyline and, in many ways, it is perfectly suited for book form. Participants are guided through the entire process of making a book, from visualization to editing, sequencing, and output. For more information, including a detailed itinerary, visit www.photoexperience.net or call (206) 817-4686.

This photo adventure begins in Aysen, an area Linde calls "unknown Patagonia." Other destinations include the Marble Caverns of Lago Carrera, Chacabuco Valley, and the Torres del Paine National Park.

In addition to individual instruction by Linde and Lito, participants benefit from the in-depth knowledge of one or two local guides. For a detailed, day-by-day itinerary of both parts and more photographs of the region, please visit www.westerneye.com.
