On Sunday 26 September 2021, Spéos welcomes Magnum Photos in its studios to create an Ephemeral Portrait Studio. Have your portrait taken by Magnum photographers Cristina de Middel, Alex Majoli, Alec Soth or Bieke Depoorter! Come alone, with friends, family or your partner, and merge into these renowned photographers’ aesthetic and creativity for a unique and unforgettable experience. Each photographer will create a unique atmosphere for your portrait.

Cristina de Middel will play with the concept of birthday pictures, using props to reproduce the atmosphere of birthday parties. Available even if it’s not your birthday.

Bieke Depoorter‘s studio will be dark with low light, to recreate the intimacy that we can often find in her portraits.

Alex Majoli, taking inspiration from his latest body of work Scene, will use flashes both in the studio and in the street.

Alec Soth will use a casual studio, with neutral walls, diffused light and playing with props.

Portraits will be chosen by the photographer. You will receive your print within 10 days.
