The three-day Magnum masterclass led by acclaimed photographers Michael Christopher Brown, Mark Power, and Larry Towell, will be focused on book editing, aimed at photographers with completed bodies of work, who require advice on honing editing skills, final image selections, and layout. It offers the opportunity to edit and produce book dummies of finished bodies of work, with experienced published photographers. Participants will be asked to bring printed versions of their project, book dummies, as well as additional images or ephemera from the project that they will be working on. 

Magnum Photos is an agency synonymous with integrity, curiosity and ‘concerned’ photography. For over sixty years, Magnum’s international photographers have chronicled the world; interpreting its environment, people and events. In the tradition of Magnum’s commitment to emerging photographers, the event will give participants an opportunity to refine their practice and editing skills with a sense of authorship under the guidance of Magnum photographers.  

Registration opens March 30.
