MASTERCLASS with Ian Berry

Learn to see the world like a Magnum-Photographer.

„The great single picture is emotionally satisfying, whereas getting a good journalistic story is more about being a professional.“ – Ian Berry

We made it possible to bring Magnum-Photographer Ian Berry to Vienna for a two day masterclass!

Berry is a committed advocate of classic photojournalism who seeks to convey an authentic reality by showing not only the wonders and beauty, but also the atrocities and hardships of the world we live in. He always works with the utmost precision, preferably in natural light, seeking, taking time, becoming almost invisible to others, but always focussed on the people.

This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to improve their photography skills by working two days with one of the most reowned photojournalists and member of Magnum‘s agency, Ian Berry. During this masterclass you will be able to discuss your own pictures and learn to see your surroundings in the manner of a photojournalist. You will practice street-photography with Leica Cameras in the heart of Vienna. Berry will give you critique and feedback upon your works.
