First Impression: A Portfolio Review

Sunday June 17th 2007
9:30am - 5pm

MILK Studios
Studio 4
450 West 15th Street
New York, NY

Be prepared to put your best foot forward to Magnum. Have your work reviewed by 3 Magnum photographers who will give you nothing but a truly honest evaluation of your work in terms of your logical “next step”.
For us to do this in a manner that most benefits you, please prepare for this portfolio review as follows:

Bring no more than 30 prints, or photographs on your laptop. This could consist of one long essay or single pictures or some combo of the two. A body of work where you have spent some significant time is best. We hope to see personal vision and unique visual perspective. If you have a book dummy that is all the better.

You will have 20 minutes for each review. We will work to assign you the appropriate Magnum photographer based on your areas of interest specified on the registration form.

Please use this event to make a good “first impression”. Edit tight. Edit for who you really are as a photographer. We will be looking very carefully.
Magnum is currently organizing more in-depth educational opportunities for emerging photographers. We like to build relationships. All of our upcoming programs will be designed to give you the most value for your investment. And an “investment” is exactly how you should view it.

In addition, HP will offer a demonstration of their newest digital workflow technologies and each participant will recieve a high-quality 20x24 digital print of one of their own images.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
