For its first edition in October 2016, the Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF) invites the two renowned Belgian Magnum Photographers Bieke Depoorter and Harry Gruyaert to run an exclusive five-day workshop.

During five extraordinary days, they will lead their groups through a daily program of shooting, reviews, group critiques, mentoring and editing. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from their peers and learn to develop their own visual language.

In the course of the workshops, Bieke Depoorter and Harry Gruyaert will share their classes for talks and editing, creating a unique experience and chance for all the participants to benefit and learn from the two mentors.

Participants will work to create an edit to be shown in the culminating workshop projection. The projection will take place on Sunday 30th in the afternoon (location and time TBD).

In addition to the workshop, Harry Gruyaert and Bieke Depoorter will give a public talk on Saturday October 29th and Sunday October 30th at BSPF.
