From his early years as a struggling photographer, to the establishment of Magnum and about his photographic legacy following assignments such as Bergen-Belsen.

#phonar13 Pre-task

The following message is to attending students but applies to anyone who would like to study remotely also. While you are not required to have a Google+ account, it would be great to be able to hangout with the larger class and to have you contributing along with the attending students.

So…Matt and I are going to be pumping out the #phonar love from now on so you need to tune the network – you have a Twitter account already (if you don’t then please go back in time right now and make one at least a year ago).

If you don’t have a Google+ account already then you need one (I don’t care Hazel, just do it – Jenny, Jenny – put that down, pay attention) add us to your “circles” (Jonathan, Matt) so we can “hangout” :) Too creepy? Anyhoo follow me on Twitter (@jonathan_Worth) and Matt (@mjohnstonmedia), you should also follow #phonar (@phonar) for all the latest news and tasks – IT’S THE LAW.
