We at NYU Tisch Future Imagemakers are passionate about image-making. We believe in the power of photography as self-expression, and as a means to reflect on our surroundings and lives, build self-confidence, and address social justice issues. We strive to expand boundaries, open up possibilities, and learn from each other.

The Department of Photography and Imaging (DPI) in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University is a four-year B.F.A. program situated in New York City. Centered on the making and understanding of images, DPI offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum while demanding a broad grounding in the liberal arts. Our department embraces multiple perspectives and approaches, which encourages critical engagement both in and outside of the classroom. Our majors explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression while working in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image-making, multimedia, new media, immersive, and post-photographic 3D simulation technologies.
