As part of Inside>>Out, Magnum Learn in Albania, join Newsha Tavakolian for a 5-day workshop in Tirana, Albania, during which you will focus on telling intimate stories through visual storytelling, using existing and new work.

Through discussions and group crits, you will explore working intuitively to forge deeper personal connections with your topics and subjects. You will learn how to shoot from your heart, creating more meaningful images by listening to your intuition, as opposed to what you believe others want to see. You will be asked to create new work on a daily basis under the guidance of Newsha Tavakolian. The shooting advice will be based on your individual and personal practice.

Tavakolian’s background in documentary photography and the moving image will enable you to experiment with your different photographic styles during the workshop. This is an opportunity to tackle any questions and doubts you may have around creating a meaningful relationship with a project, as well as drawing out the personal in your work.

This workshop offers:

  • Tools to develop a photographic project centred on the personal.
  • Feedback on your existing body of work
  • Your work screened during a public event
  • Group crits with Newsha Tavakolian
  • Lectures by all Magnum photographers present during Inside>>Out


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, and technical abilities
  • Have a deeper understanding of where you’re currently at in your photographic practice
  • Engage in informed, critical self-reflection and the ability to critique peers
  • Develop an understanding of the variety of ways in which photography can function as a means of personal expression and as a documentary record
