SIPF 2016: Magnum Photos Workshop

The Magnum Workshop is an intensive five-day workshop designed to guide and encourage photographers in refining visual narratives in the Magnum tradition of documentary storytelling. The third initiative conceived by Magnum Photos and Singapore International Photography Festival follows on from the successes of the Magnum Mentorship programmes hosted in 2012 and 2014.

Intended for photographers wishing to broaden their visual perspective and push the boundaries of their personal development, the Magnum Workshop will elevate the professional standard of both regional and international photographers, under the guidance of Magnum’s contemporary practitioners, Matt Black, Chien-Chi Chang and Alessandra Sanguinetti. A new format has been developed this year to help photographers realise their vision in producing works for their desired output. Each mentor will focus on guiding photographers in the production of works for one of the three presentation methods: Exhibition, Multimedia and Publication.

The workshop culminates in a public showcase and evening projection of students’ work in DECK’s Courtyard, as part of the official programme of the Singapore International Photography Festival, from 15th to 30th October.
