As part of Magnum’s 70th anniversary, Magnum Photos Hong Kong presents the second panel discussion of its annual program in collaboration with Boogie Woogie Photography and Fine Art Asia.
 
Panelists: Stuart Franklin (Magnum Photos), Dr. Florian Knothe, (University Museum and Art Gallery), Leong Ka Tai (Photographer)
Moderator: Claudia Hinterseer (Managing Multimedia Producer)
 
The panel will discuss answers to questions, such as: what is the philosophical and methodological basis of Magnum Photos’ education programme? How can contemporary image-makers be taught to promote new thinking and make a difference in the world? Would the panel agree to Magnum’s Alex Majoli (in aforementioned Wear Good Shoes) saying: “Look as little as possible at other photographers’ work”? And, since we live in a world where everyone can now take technically perfect pictures, will the need for photography education eventually diminish?
The conversation will offer a perspective on the award-winning photographer and educator Stuart Franklin’s career and the experiences of the other panellists.

University Museum and Art Gallery, Lung Fu Shan, Bonham Rd, Hong Kong
