Fotofestiwal, Magnum Photos and Digital Camera Polska announce a photography contest, in which you can win participation in the Magnum Masterclass “Finding you Vision” workshop funded by the Magnum Photos Agency The 4-day workshop lead by world-class photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb will be held in Lodz, as part of the Fotofestiwal, from 1 to 4 June 2014.
The workshop is designed for advanced amateurs and professional photographers. It will consist of two sections: individual field work and a joint edition exercise. Each participant will work on a single topic of their choice under the supervision of Alex and Rebecca. The aim of the workshop is to create a consistent series of works. In addition to the daily photography practice, the participants will be trained in photography editing and processing for print. They will learn how to prepare for work in an unknown environment, take photographs in other cultures, and select the right photos to create a consistent and strong message. They will be provided with basic guidance of how to work with book designers and magazine editors; what is the difference between photography for books and photography for walls; and how long term projects may evolve in books and exhibitions.
