MAGDALENA SOLÉ is an award-winning social documentary photographer. She is known for her sensitive expressions of culture through distinctive color artistry. Magdalena Solé’s work touches on the themes of displacement and human suffering, societies living on the margins and places forgotten or shunned by the mainstream. Her visual narratives are often inspired by poetry. Magdalena Solé was born in Spain, raised in Switzerland, and lived in New York City for more than thirty years before moving to the deep countryside of Vermont. Visual language has been her life’s work. She earned her MFA in film from Columbia University, New York, and has worked as a professional photographer, and filmmaker. She was part of the team that won the 2009 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for the film Man on Wire. 

An important part of Solé’s practice as a photographer includes creating artist’s books. Her photo book “New Delta Rising”, published by the University Press of Mississippi, was released in February 2012. It has won the Silver Award in 2011 at PX3 Prix de la Photographie, France. The Wall Street Journal in February 2012 called her images: “lushly colorful, formally striking, restless, and electrifying.” 

 Solé teaches photo workshops and lectures internationally on photography. Her new book “Cuba: Hasta Siempre”, published by the University Press of Mississippi, will be available in 2020. Her work spans the globe: most recently she has been working in Europe documenting the life of Gypsies, and also in Japan in remote temples and villages.


Solé’s work has been the subject of eighteen solo exhibitions in the United States and internationally. She is interested in people and places on the margins. Her photography explores themes of poverty, displacement, and transition, and her international vocation has seen her complete documentary projects in places from Cuba to Japan.

No longer avoid getting your photographs in order. Instead, bring your photography project full circle. 

Learn how to create your exhibition, book, portfolio, or slideshow .


In this workshop you will develop skills to organize your images into a cohesive project:

  • Prepare for a portfolio review 

  • Create a digital projection 

  • Produce a photo book


In the world of street/documentary and fine art photography it is essential that work is well edited. Whether preparing for portfolio reviews, book proposals, gallery shows or a magazine story, a solid foundation in the fundamentals of editing and sequencing are necessary tools in the current art market. We've all been there, wallowing in hundreds of images, each a little different from the next. What to choose?


In this four day workshop award-winning social documentary photographer Magdalena Solé will help you hone your eye for efficient self-editing. We will learn to edit large bodies of your work in a practical way towards selection of the best images; how to quickly differentiate between good pictures and those that are not and why; create a consistent look or a narrative theme; and work on sequencing.
