Magnum Photos: Meeting with Photographers of the Legendary Agency15:00

Limited seating available, prior registration at is required

"I believe I've taken enough photos not to take them anymore. However, I still take them," – Gueorgui Pinkhassov, winner of numerous photograph awards and the only Russian member of Magnum Photos.

In 1978, Pinkhasov joined the photography section of the Moscow Union of Graphic Artists. He received his first big break when he was noticed and invited by director Andrey Tarkovsky to make a photo reportage about the shooting of the film Stalker (1979). In the middle of the 1990s, he became a member of Magnum Photos. His photographs are now constantly published in the world press, and he actively collaborates with magazines and publications, including The New York Times.

He describes his working method as such; "there are no discoveries without accidents. Art is accident". He rarely plans his projects, preferring instead to shoot by intuition, then select images and distribute them between various projects that range from exhibitions to books. Elements of surprises and coincidence, creativity, and professional skills are the main themes of his lecture.
