Magnum Photos is partnering with Speos Photography School in a new, 1-year course on creative documentary and photojournalism. According to the Speos website:
The Creative Documentary & Photojournalism program is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in documentary photography and/or photojournalism, in the Magnum Photos tradition of visual storytelling.
The course equips students with the historical and contextual framework required to develop and engage in critical thinking about documentary photography, as well as providing technical guidance and tutorial support to develop students’ individual documentary practice. Students have unique access to Magnum’s photographers and its experienced staff, with elements of the course taught at the Magnum Photos office in central Paris.
The formal program is delivered by Speos and its appointed teachers and supplemented by Magnum photographers and staff.
The course will be offered at the Speos campus in Paris from September 14, 2015 to July 22, 2016. The instruction language will be English. Tuition will be 30,000 Euros.
