Magnum Photos and the Centre for Comparative Studies of Civilisations and Spiritualities at Fondazione Giorgio Cini are inviting applications for the second workshop organized on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, offering participants the opportunity to work on their projects in an immersive and intimate group setting.
Join Magnum photographer Alex Majoli for an intense three-day of honest discussions about photography, during which he will talk at large about his work, give you critical feedback about your practice and explain in details how he has developed his technique to work on his latest body of work “Scene“.
Organized into intensive sessions of lectures, discussions, practical exercises, and group portfolio reviews, this workshop will help you to develop strategies and set individual project objectives, and give insights on how to pursue your project. Whether you want to keep shooting, publish your project in a book or exhibit it, through individual mentoring and wider discussions on the contemporary editorial environment, this masterclass will contextualize and shape the vision of each involved photographer and define the process of conceiving and executing a long-term project.
This masterclass is suitable for photographers with a large body of work who are looking for guidance in the final stage of their projects or photographers starting a new project and are at a researched stage. Each participant will have an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the editing process of long-term projects and on choosing the right format for displaying them.
Price: 820€ (incl. VAT).
