The Magnum masterclasses:

Antoine D’Agata

Torino, 5 e 6 novembre 2016

“It’s not how photographers look at the world that is important. It’s their intimate relationship with it.”

— Antoine D’Agata

“Through the practice of documentary photography I try to help the students to determinate a proper position inside reality and to confront themselves to it”

Each participant must bring a small presentation of their existing work. Over the two days Antoine D’Agata will lead participants through two intensive days of shooting, reviews, group critiques and editing sessions, to help each participant to develop each own visual language. Antoine D’Agata will encourage students to develop their voice as a story-teller, guiding students through an assignment, considering approach, editing, sequencing, and development.

The masterclass will be in English, with maximum 15 participants attending, at Camera – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia in Turin.

Program is subject to change, the classes will be held in case of bad weather too.

 Cost of masterclass is € 490,00

(Travel, accommodation, and any other expense is not included)

Born in Marseilles, Antoine d’Agata left France in 1983 and remained overseas for the next ten years. Finding himself in New York in 1990, he pursued an interest in photography by taking courses at the International Center of Photography, where his teachers included Larry Clark and Nan Goldin.

During his time in New York, in 1991-92, d’Agata worked as an intern in the editorial department of Magnum, but despite his experiences and training in the US, after his return to France in 1993 he took a four-year break from photography. His first books of photographs, De Mala Muerte and Mala Noche, were published in 1998, and the following year Galerie Vu began distributing his work. In 2001 he published Hometown, and won the Niépce Prize for young photographers. He continued to publish regularly: Vortex and Insomnia appeared in 2003, accompanying his exhibition 1001 Nuits, which opened in Paris in September; Stigma was published in 2004, and Manifeste in 2005.

In 2004 d’Agata joined Magnum Photos and in the same year, shot his first short film, Le Ventre du Monde (The World’s Belly); this experiment led to his long feature film Aka Ana, shot in 2006 in Tokyo.

Since 2005 Antoine d’Agata has had no settled place of residence but has worked around the world.

Detailed Program



Participants will have the opportunity to explore the city and shoot what interests them. More than learning new technical skills, this course focuses on improving each student’s own unique photographic vision. Candidates will be expected to arrive comfortably dressed and with their own equipment, ready to work, and have a sufficient fluency in the English language as this workshop will be taught in English.

Due to the fast pace of the workshop, Magnum highly recommends that participants produce and edit their work digitally, using their own laptops. We also recommend participants arrive with one realistic project idea they wish to develop during the workshop.

The two-day workshop will lead a total of up to 15 International participants through an intense program of shooting, critiquing and editing. Participants will work with Antoine D’Agata to create an edit to be shown in the culminating workshop projection on the afternoon of the last day of the program.

This workshop will challenge participants practice to date with a focus on individual authorship and defining a personal vision.

Candidates will be expected to arrive with their own equipment (laptops, USB cards or/and hard drives), ready to work, and have sufficient fluency to be taught in English.
