Magnum City to Sea Workshop
February 12, 2013
Posted by on
This spring, Magnum Photos are delighted to be partnering with Goldsmiths, University of London in organising a truly distinctive photography workshop with icons of the British holiday industry, Butlins.
The workshop is inspired by Goldsmiths’ 2011 international symposium ‘City to Sea’, which brought together artists, photographers and social scientists to develop visual projects and sociological research exploring culture, tourism, coastal regeneration and the heritage of the British seaside.
Following on from the symposium’s success, British Magnum photographer Peter Marlow will lead a four day workshop in the seaside resort of Bognor Regis in West Sussex, assisting participants with the production of new exploratory projects whilst developing photographic identity and visual narratives. During the workshop, participants will work alongside Marlow and the City to Sea curators, artists Rebecca Locke & David Kendall, in a daily program of shooting, reviewing, critiquing, mentoring and editing, hosted by Butlins.
The workshop program is accompanied by presentations and discussions with Goldsmiths, University of London researchers and artists, including Paul Halliday, Course Leader of the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures and Bognor Regis historian Sylvia Endacott. Peter Marlow will also present his work in a public lecture.
