Los Angeles Magnum Workshop: Magnum Photos are excited to partner with Photo Independent to bring three workshops, lead by leading Magnum photographers to Hollywood, Los Angeles. For nearly seventy years, Magnum’s international photographers have chronicled the world; interpreting its environment, people and events and helping to shape documentary photography as a modern form of artistic expression. These workshops will be lead by Magnum photographers Bruce Gilden, Moises Saman, and Constantine Manos.

April 18 – April 22, 2016. Raleigh Studios, Hollywood.

  1. The only interesting thing about this photo is the subject, no thanks to the photographer. I’ve seen better portraits come out of the DMV. If you want to see really great portraits of interesting people, buy “American West” by Avedon.

  2. So much sadness behind the eyes and even more tragic when you read that she is ‘a card dealer, Las Vegas’. Any woman who has ever had to put up with the ‘you’re-too-pretty-to-be (insert any role that values talent and skills over appearance and is usually a male dominated field here)’ can relate with compassion.
    It is easy to see she had big plans for her life and now it is just about hanging onto looks that probably didn’t get her much in the first place. A grim lesson for those who stifle the dreams of others. No such thing as ‘too pretty’ but there is a such thing as ‘too selfish’.

  3. I’m interested whether, given the recent discussions on the Brussels photograph, ethics in photograpy will be covered in the Bruce Gilden workshop… it’s a fine line he’s been walking in his series Faces and i’m not sure on which side of the line he is positioned…although having secured permission from all his subjects, it’s also clear that mental faculties are often lacking/diminished in his subjects…combine that to the deliberate goal of portraying the subjects as grotesque as possible, one has to conclude that the series at least opens up an excellent platform for discussing ethics.
