cape town masterclass

In March 2012, the NOOR Foundation organized the annual NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography in Cape Town, South Africa.

Fifteen young documentary photographers and photojournalists hailing from five different countries were selected and gathered at the Cape Town School of Photography to team up with three NOOR photographers.

During a five-day intense workshop, a host of information about the profession was shared in sessions in which professional experiences were discussed, personal portfolios were reviewed and editing skills improved. The participants worked on a story around the theme of ‘my daily life’ in preparation of the class.

The annual NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography is realized with the generous support of Nikon Europe BV.
