Push your work and career to the next level with the guidance of a Magnum nominee


Magnum Photos is pleased to announced a new two-day Masterclass in Hong Kong with Magnum nominee Sohrab Hura.

Organized in collaboration with Menos Photos, as Hong Kong hosts Art Basel Hong Kong 2018 with an exhibition of Sohrab Hura, this inspirational two-day event will be focused on finding new possibilities and directions in your work, offering a unique opportunity to emerging photographers to benefit from the advice of a Magnum nominee.


The Masterclass

The masterclass will incorporate inspirational presentations from Sohrab, portfolio critiques and discussions around photography to give a push in your career and work. Critiques will be conducted amongst the masterclass group, encouraging confidence skills and the ability to articulate and communicate about projects.

These two days are designed for photographers who are midway through a body of work and are looking to continue it. Participants will not make new work but instead the first one and a half days will be spent in exploring new directions and forms that their works could eventually take.
Conversations are an important element here and everyone will be encouraged to be an equal participant.
In the final half of the second day, Sohrab Hura will share his work, in all its forms, with the participants.

The event will be held at Meteor HK, 9A Lin Fook House, 3 Jardine Crescent, Causeway Bay

Tuition fees: £450 / plus tax where appropriate. Includes lunch.

He started with dreams of growing up and becoming a dog, which later turned to becoming a superhero and then to a veterinarian to a herpetologist to becoming a wildlife filmmaker.
