About

For over twenty years, the Market Photo Workshop has played a pivotal role in the training of South Africas photographers, ensuring that visual literacy reaches neglected and marginalized parts of our society. Since it was founded in 1989, by world-renowned photographer David Goldblatt, the Photo Workshop has been an agent of change and representation, informing photographers, visual artists, educators, students and broader communities of trends, issues, and debates in photography and visual culture.

The Photo Workshop offers courses in photography and training, as well as multi-layered projects and interactions that respond to the complex backgrounds of education, culture, and identity, within a contemporary understanding of photography and the social conditions of South Africa. The training courses offered include a Foundation Course, an Intermediate Course. In addition to this, the Market Photo Workshop offers two full-time year long courses: an Advanced Programme and a Photojournalism and Documentary Photography Programme. Many of the students that attend courses at the Market Photo Workshop are from low income backgrounds and rely on bursaries to be able to further their studies in photography. Alumni of the Market Photo Workshop include internationally acclaimed photographers Jodi Bieber, Zanele Muholi, Lolo Veleko, Sabelo Mlangeni and Musa Nxumalo.
