Magnum Photos is organising a "five-day intensive, practice-oriented workshop focusing specifically on the popular theme of street photography," to coincide with the Format11 International Photography Festival in Derby, a biennial of contemporary photography.
Led by Magnum street photographers Bruce Gilden, Richard Kalvar and Chris Steele-Perkins, the workshop will see successful candidates get the opportunity to shoot, polish and publish their work under the guidance of these experienced practitioners, says Magnum.
For its fifth edition, the Format festival, which launches on 04 March, will, through a programme of exhibitions, events, interactions and mass participation, examine the various strategies of Street Photography under the title Right Here Right Now: Exposures From the Public Realm. The Magnum Workshop Derby will be a major focus of the festival.
The workshop is aimed at photographers "with a good understanding of photographic practice," says Magnum. "Each Magnum photographer will lead intimate groups of twelve individuals through an intensive program of shooting, daily reviews, group critiques, mentoring, editing sessions and the opportunity to learn amongst peers."
It continues: "Participants will be asked to approach a photographic story in Derby or the surrounding area in an informal 'street' photography style. Candidates will also be actively encouraged to engage in and attend the diverse schedule of the Format festival events. Forming part of the extensive programming, each Magnum photographer will introduce their work & career histories through audiovisual presentations at the festival."
The workshop will culminate in a public projection of candidate’s work and the production of group books, sponsored by Blurb.
The five-day workshop costs £700 +VAT. For more details and to register, visit the Magnum Photos website.
