Join Magnum photographer Antoine d’Agata in an exploration of “What it means to be here”: a unique two-day workshop in New York City, held at The Invisible Dog Art Center.
Through this one evening, two-day intensive and intimate event, you will be encouraged to explore a more psychological approach to your image making, considering: the role of photography in society, how we relate to photography as individuals, and how we are seen and how we see. You will be prompted to contemplate the connection of being and photography; how we can see that in ourselves in both human form, and through images.
Through this workshop, the themes and considerations, and the guidance of d’Agata, you will be encouraged to deeply immerse yourself in new concepts of photography while learning to edit, sequence and create unique and innovative images.
Due to the intensity of the workshop, Magnum highly recommends that participants produce and edit their work digitally, using their own laptops. We also recommend participants be advanced in their photographic skills. This workshop is not about learning new technical skills, but instead designed to improve each student’s understanding of their photographic practice, their relationship with photography, and their subject to create unique and engaging images. Candidates will be expected to arrive comfortable with their equipment, ready to work.
