Once again, CONTACT will be playing host to the Magnum Photo Workshops during this year’s festival during the month of May.
The Magnum Workshop Toronto is a five day practice-oriented workshop that seeks to provide personal photographic growth in an intimate and intensive environment.
During the workshop, students will participate in an intimate shooting workshop with their choice of one of seven Magnum Photographers: Bruno Barbey, Chien-Chi Chang, Bruce Gilden, David Alan Harvey, Eli Reed, Larry Towell and Donovan Wylie. In addition to the dynamic within each workshop, there will also be ample informal time for cross pollination of viewpoints and commentary with the other teachers as well as the other students.
Participants will produce individual projects over the course of five days with daily review and editing sessions within their groups. Focusing on story formation, visual literacy, and personal vision, these intimate, intensive masterclasses form the center of the Magnum Workshop Toronto. Prior to the workshop, each accepted applicant will be sent specific directives from their selected workshop leader.
