How classes work
Each class is 3 hours long and limited to 8 students. Classes will be led by Michael and on 3 occasions, he will be joined by an industry professional (curator, editor or photographer). Last year we were joined by Phillip Toledano, Martine Fougeron and Elinor Carucci. Classes run from January to May. You must be able to attend at least 4 of the 5 critique sessions.
