Istanbul has been captivating and inspiring artists and writers for centuries. With this in mind, Magnum is excited to hold two 6-day workshops with Turkish photographer Emin Özmen and Photo Editor Cloé Kerhoas for a second consecutive year, both long-time residents of Istanbul. During the six days, you will explore the city, whilst photographically focusing on a topic of your choice.
On day one, Özmen and Kerhoas will give a tour of the city to familiarise Istanbul’s history, cultural landmarks and neighborhoods. After spending the first day together as a group, you will then work individually, photographing your chosen subject. Everybody will reconvene at the beginning of each day to look at each other’s work and to discuss and receive feedback and advice. On the fourth day of the workshop, Cloé Kerhoas will give a lecture about professional practice, including advice on getting in touch with editors, how to get funding for your photo projects, and how to build an online presence. The last day of the workshop will be dedicated to editing and sequencing your work.
This workshop in Istanbul is made possible thanks to the generous support of Fujifilm Turkey. During the workshop, Fujifilm Turkey will be providing camera equipment free of charge.
