Photography workshop in Fez

Renowned Magnum photographer, Antoine d'Agata, will be in Fez in October to present a photographic workshop.

Antoine d'Agata

The workshop will be held from 25-31 October in a Fez medina riad and will be limited to a total of 12 participants. Organisers 1000 Words explain that the purpose of the workshop will be to concentrate on a very personal approach to photography and certainly this will be a richly rewarding week for those who wish to push themselves.

Antoine d’Agata is one of the most unique and important photographers of our age. His imagery is characterised by an intense and highly subjective experience that pushes the limits of social documentary photography. Born in Marseille, 1961, he left France in 1990 to study at The International Centre for Photography in New York alongside Nan Goldin and Larry Clark. His work has been published in the books Insomnia, Vortex, Stigma and Agonie amongst others, and he has been exhibited internationally at galleries and festivals including Rencontres d’Arles, Noorderlicht, FotoFreo and The Photographers Gallery, London. He has been a member of Magnum Photos since 2004.

1000 Words Photography is an artist-led organisation that has promoted the work of more than 280 art photographers through publishing and exhibiting opportunities. The organisation´s flagship is 1000 Words, an online magazine dedicated to highlighting the best work in contemporary art photography worldwide. The 1000 Words Workshop is organised by Tim Clark, writer and editor-in-chief at 1000 Words and Michael Grieve, 1000 Words contributing editor and photographer.

“It isn’t the eye that photography poses on the world that interests me but its most intimate rapport with that world”
Antoine d’Agata
