BIOGRAPHY

RW has worn many hats in the world of film production and new media, such as editor, producer, location scout, and post-production supervisor. Webb has worked on documentaries and feature films with directors William Klein, Darren Arronofsky and Hal Hartley, to name a few. Webb is especially interested in digital technology and how it's shaping next-gen filmmaking  and film-going experiences.  In her role as film curator for ArtPower!, she is inaugurating the Filmatic Festival (April 2014), a digitally-diverse festival that aims to blur the line between audience and artist.  Webb also lectures in film production media and photography at UC San Diego. Her fine art photography work is exhibited in galleries in Boston, New York City, San Diego and various museums nation-wide.

ABOUT MY WORK

My work visually investigates the nature of relationships through the medium of photography, and the language of film and painting. I explore the dynamics between friends, families, and lovers, and the connection between identity and the places we inhabit. 

My work also examines the chasm between how certain individuals see and represent themselves in ways that do not conform with societal expectations — “For nonconformity the world will whip you with its displeasure.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
