Students start their LCC Short Course journey with us with an aim to upskill, we always hope that our students can leave with a host of new skills, confidence and further knowledge of their specialism – we caught up with the students from our three-week Magnum Intensive Documentary Photography Course. We visited the students mid course at the Magnum Photos London office for their session ‘Editing and layout – with Stuart Franklin and Chris Steele Perkins’. The session was an opportunity for students to start editing down their selection of photos for their final project – a printed zine to be presented on the final evening of the course amongst friends and family at LCC.
Throughout the process of creating their zines, students were asked to focus on how to develop a personal project with an authentic voice, to explore and define an individual approach to documentary photography and will consider all elements of successful project development; from research phases, to access and shooting, to the editing and creation of a zine and public projection.
We caught up with some of the students after the course ended to hear about their zine making experience and the key things they have taken away from the intense three-week course in association with Magnum and LCC.
