Magnum Photos is happy to partner with Thursday’s Child, a global platform for unsigned photographers and filmmakers aged 16-30 years, to present a free panel discussion event exploring the theme of “Emerging”.

Lua Ribeira, Magnum photographer, will be in conversation with Tim Paton, Director of Commercial Assignments at Magnum Photos and Jessica Bradbury, founder of Shoot Europe and Thursday’s Child to discuss the challenges of starting out in photography.

This free event will offer you the chance to meet industry professionals and photographers, and engage in a lively Q&A session. The event will also showcase the work of six emerging photographers, whose work has been selected from an open call on the theme of ‘Emerging’ and chosen by Lua Ribeira.

The panel discussion will start at 1.45pm, followed by informal drinks and presentation of the selected photographers.

To attend the event, please RSVP to Mollie Nathan:

Lua Ribeira

Lua Ribeira’s practice is characterized by its collaborative nature, extensive research and an immersive approach to her subject matter. She is interested in using the photographic medium as a means for navigating the environment she lives in, and as a tool for self-expression.

Ribeira was born in 1986, in Galicia, northern Spain. She graduated in Graphic Design at BAU School of Design, Barcelona 2011, and earned with first class honours a BA in Documentary Photography from the University of South Wales, Newport, U.K., in 2016. Since graduating, she has continued her academic engagement as an external lecturer at various universities, including the London College of Communication, University of the West of England and the University of South Wales.

Notable personal projects include the acclaimed Noises in the Blood (2015-17), which looks at British dancehall rituals with a particular focus on the role played by women.
