To coincide with its 67th annual general meeting, Magnum Photos is organising a two-day masterclass with photographers Jim Goldberg, Mark Power and Alec Soth

“In the tradition of Magnum’s commitment to emerging photographers, this exclusive masterclass will give limited participants a rare opportunity to refine their photographic practice and sense of authorship under the guidance of Magnum’s progressive photographers,” says Magnum Photos. “The masterclass will incorporate inspirational presentations from all three Magnum photographers, portfolio critiques and an overnight shooting assignment. Critiques will be conducted amongst masterclass groups, encouraging confidence building skills and the ability to communicate projects, as well as engaging peer-to-peer feedback. Participants will work with assigned Magnum photographer and their Masterclass group to developing a realistic overnight brief; work from which will be reviewed the following day.

The masterclass, which will be held on 30 June and 01 July, costs £450/$750 with applicants being chosen on the strength of their portfolios and “the perceived benefit to the photographer’s career.
