Selected images from the portfolio I’ll be presenting at next week’s Magnum Masterclass.

In conjunction with its 67th Annual General Meeting, Magnum Photos are proud to announce a 2 day masterclass led by acclaimed contemporary photographers Jim Goldberg, Mark Power and Alec Soth.

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 and helping to shape documentary photography as a modern form of artistic expression. As a modern agency, the current preoccupation is focused on the role of authorship in an image saturated world. In conjunction with Magnum’s historic archive a new means of culturally relevant production is being explored by both agency and its photographers, leading to a greater dialogue with the wider art market, diverse platforms and emerging geographies.

In the tradition of Magnum’s commitment to emerging photographers, this exclusive masterclass will give limited participants a rare opportunity to refine their photographic practice and sense of authorship under the guidance of Magnum’s progressive photographers.

The masterclass will incorporate inspirational presentations from all three Magnum photographers, portfolio critiques and an overnight shooting assignment. Critiques will be conducted amongst masterclass groups, encouraging confidence building skills and the ability to communicate projects as well as engaging peer-to-peer feedback.

I recently purchased a roll of Verichrome Pan that expired in 1961. I used it in my 1957 Nomad 127. Very excited with the results.

D’you know the big problem with a disguise?
However hard you try, it’s always a self-portrait.

“I fell in love with taking pictures, with wandering around finding things. To me it feels like a kind of performance. The picture is a document of that performance.” Alec Soth
