Magnum Photos and Fujifilm Korea are proud to propose this 5-day workshop with Magnum Photographer Peter van Agtmael for the first time ever in Seoul, South Korea.


During the five-day workshop, you will work individually to create a personal photographic response to the city. You will then participate in group review sessions and explore the power of editing to create a meaningful selection of work.


You will have the opportunity to spend time with Peter van Agtmael and your peers on a daily basis, allowing you to ask for guidance and have your work reviewed throughout the workshop.


Due to the fast pace and limited time of the workshop, participants are encouraged to start thinking about their story ideas before arriving in Seoul.


This workshop offers:

  • Create new work or continue a project under the guidance of Peter van Agtmael
  • Group portfolio reviews including advice on work and professional development
  • Get a better understanding on how to find a personal vision and style
  • Lectures by Peter van Agtmael
  • Evenings socialising with the group
  • Spend a week working in an iconic photography venue



By the end of the workshop, participants should…

  • Have a thoroughly planned and critically informed self-directed body of photographic work
  • Be able to demonstrate creative, visual, intellectual and technical abilities
  • Engage in informed, critical self-reflection and the ability to critique peers
  • Demonstrate an understanding of editing photographs for different outputs
  • Develop an understanding of the variety of ways in which photography can function as a means of personal expression and as a documentary record


The workshop is open to photographers of all levels, from passionate amateurs to working professionals who want to further refine their skills.
