“Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Program expands diversity and creativity in the field of documentary photography through capacity-building and critical explorations of photography and social change.

Each year, the program supports a diverse, international group of Photography and Social Justice Fellows who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography. With New York City as a cultural resource, the program provides space for interdisciplinary experimentation, mentored project development, and cross-cultural, critical discourse at the intersection of photography and social justice. During the program, Fellows work on projects in their home communities* with support from Magnum Foundation’s mentors.

CRITERIA:

• Early-career documentary photographers, artists, and photojournalists

• Activists who use photography in their change-making practice

• Journalists who would like to deepen their engagement with photography

• Scholars who incorporate images and image-making in their research and scholarship

• Preference is given to those who have not had previous opportunity to do a formal course of study in photography at the university level.

• Applicants must be proficient in spoken and written English. All instruction will be in English and there will be no simultaneous translation for instruction or discussion during the course sessions.

• We are especially seeking applications from people of color, women, individuals who are part of social, political, or cultural groups who are currently or historically oppressed or excluded, and individuals who are LGBTQ or non-binary. Refugees are welcome to apply.”
