City Landscape Workshop with Jean Gaumy and Richard Kalvar in Hong Kong
Learn from Magnum photographers Jean Gaumy and Richard Kalvar in this intensive five-day workshop
Following the unfortunate cancelation of Harry Gruyaert’s participation due to unforeseen circumstances, we are happy to invite the master street photographer Richard Kalvar to lead a workshop alongside Jean Gaumy.
These workshops aim to develop your capability to read and capture the natural and built landscape under the tutelage of Magnum photographers.
Intended for passionate amateurs and professional photographers alike, with a strong interest in documentary, street or landscape photography and storytelling, the workshops will challenge you to create new work and develop your own visual language and photographic identity through practical assignments and group critiques.
The number of attendees will be limited to 12 per class and all participants will have a chance to have their work reviewed by both photographers during the workshops. Images will be reviewed each day and participants are expected to be shooting through the workshop.
Both Jean Gaumy and Richard Kalvar will also give intimate artist talks about their own work and experiences, sharing their key advice and insights.
The workshops offer:
• Mentoring by Magnum photographers Jean Gaumy and Richard Kalvar
• Visual Style – guiding you through technical, theoretical and aesthetic issues
• Practical work and feedback
• Group portfolio reviews including advice on work and professional development
• Individual portfolio reviews with Jean Gaumy and Richard Kalvar
This event is made possible thanks to the support of PMQ.
