The Photography Master Retreat is a one-week immersive and international workshop which mentors established and emerging photographers to rethink their work, refocus their trajectory and recharge their artistic batteries.
Founded by Martine Fougeron, The Photography Master Retreat, fifth edition, will be held from July 6-13, 2019 in the south of France, the week after Les Rencontres d'Arles. For a select group of fourteen participants, chosen by the mentors from submitted applications. Still a few spots available.
