Magnum Photos and the Centre for Comparative Studies of Civilisations and Spiritualities at Fondazione Giorgio Cini are inviting applications for the third workshop organized on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, offering participants the opportunity to work on their projects in an immersive and intimate group setting.

Join Magnum photographer Sabiha Çimen for a three-day workshop where you will participate in discussions about documentary photography and how to develop personal long-term projects. During the course, Sabiha accompanied by the guest course tutor, Jason Eskenazi – photographer and founder of Red Hook Books, will talk at large about their work and give you critical feedback about your practice.

Organized into intensive sessions of lectures, editing and sequencing exercises, and group portfolio reviews, this workshop will help you to develop strategies and set individual project objectives. Whether you want to keep shooting, publish your project in a book or exhibit it, through a round table discussion on the contemporary editorial environment, this workshop will contextualize and shape the vision of each involved photographer.

This workshop is open for 15 participants and suitable for photographers with a large body of work who are looking for guidance in the final stage of their projects or photographers starting a new project and are at a research stage. Each participant will have an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the editing process of long-term projects and on choosing the right format for displaying them.
