Magnum Workshop coming to Toronto

Magnum Photos, a photo co-operative started two years after the Second World War ended, is bringing its very popular photography workshop to Toronto, Ontario on May 3-7.

This five-day workshop is aimed at working photojournalists and advanced amateurs who are able to put together a portfolio (which is required). Have a look at the website and check out the portfolios of the instructors. It’s going to be a fantastic opportunity for a few selected photographers to work with the very best photojournalists working today.

Magnum was started by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David “Chim” Seymour. Here’s a link to the history of Magnum.

If I was still shooting for one of my publications I’d run to signup. Tuition is $1300 (US) and Sociabank is offering a scholarship for Canadian photography students. Cool.
