After two years of reduced in-person activity, Magnum Photos is offering everyone the chance to share unique moments with the agency's Photographers in New York this summer. With an exciting schedule of photography workshops, conferences, book signings and ephemeral portrait studios, everyone from photography fans to working professionals are invited to (re)immerse themselves in the world of Magnum.
Even after 15 years as a working photographer the Magnum Learn programme this year has been absolutely superb and expanded my mind to new possibilities. Now living in a rural part of Australia I am even more isolated, but thanks to Magnum this year I have been able to connect on a global stage with peers and experts that wouldn’t previously had been possible.
Gregory Halpern leads our latest on-demand class. Featuring a curriculum of 16 lessons, this class unpacks his approach to portraiture, the power of editing and sequencing in building photographic narratives, and shares insights into how his celebrated projects and photobooks – including A, ZZYZX and Omaha Sketchbook – were created.
Magnum Photos is committed to fostering better access to opportunities within our own organization and the wider photographic industry. Over the past five years we have provided free educational offerings for over 1,200 emerging photographers.
We offer scholarships opportunities for many activities across our educational program, ranging from workshops and seminars, to portfolio reviews and our professional practice series.
