Description

This workshop is now fully booked. Sign up to the waiting list.

Join Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata for a three-day immersive workshop in Paris on how to explore and expand your photographic practice. 

Throughout the three-day intensive course, you will be encouraged to explore different approaches to image-making, whilst considering the role of photography in society, how we relate to photography as individuals, as well as how we are seen and how we see the world. The workshop will help you develop a better understanding of who you are as an artist as you develop and shoot new work, whilst receiving regular feedback from d’Agata and your peers through group feedback sessions.

Prior to the workshop, we ask participants to reflect on their way of working and find an idea, a project, or a theme that they would like to develop both photographically and artistically during the course, as well as how they hope to develop their practice after the workshop is complete. The idea is not to come out of the three days with a finished project, but to use this opportunity to take a step back, reflect, and find direction for your practice following d’Agata’s mentorship. 

The workshop is open to 12 participants. We recommend that you already have advanced skills in photography and require that you bring your own laptops to work digitally. 

 

The workshop includes: 

  • Shooting sessions in Paris
  • Editing and sequencing sessions and exercises 
  • Portfolio reviews
  • Discussions 

The workshop will be moderated by Sofia Abechir, Education Coordinator at Magnum Photos.

March 31, 9:30 a.m.–April 2, 6:00 p.m.

Biography:

Antoine d'Agata joined Magnum in 2004 and in the same year, shot his first short film, Le Ventre du Monde (The World’s Belly); this experiment led to his long feature film Aka Ana, shot in 2006 in Tokyo. Born in Marseilles, Antoine d’Agata left France in 1983 and remained overseas for the next ten years. Finding himself in New York in 1990, he pursued an interest in photography by taking courses at the International Center of Photography, where his teachers included Larry Clark and Nan Goldin. His first books of photographs, De Mala Muerte, and Mala Noche, were published in 1998, and the following year Galerie Vu began distributing his work. In 2001, he published Hometownand won the Niépce Prize for young photographers. He continued to publish regularly: Vortex and Insomnia appeared in 2003, accompanying his exhibition 1001 Nuits, which opened in Paris in September; Stigma was published in 2004, and Manifeste in 2005.
