Future Imagemakers is a free digital program for New York City area high school students offered in the Department of Photography and Imaging (DPI) at New York University and part of Tisch Future Artists. The collaborative workshop is taught by DPI faculty and students. We at Future Imagemakers are passionate about image-making, self-expression, and social justice. We believe in the power of photography to celebrate diversity and intersectionality, and to address racism, gender discrimination, and all forms of intolerance. We seek to expand boundaries and learn from each other.

“All of our projects are different. They range from one place or idea to another and aren’t really ‘this’ or ‘that.’ Like in a color spectrum, you aren’t certain when the colors blend from one to another.” – Naidelyn Contreras, 10th Grade

These projects by NYU Tisch Future Imagemakers explore people and places, familiar and strange, in New York City and beyond. Twelve emerging photographers used their cameras to delve into the depths of the mind and imagination, and to carefully observe and comment on relationships — between humans and the environment. Their lenses focused on family, friends, dreams, nature, fashion, immigration, mental health, and more. While each Imagemaker’s artistic approach is unique, all of these projects are bound by a sense of curiosity and a willingness to embrace ambiguity, connection, and discovery. Students come from different high schools — and some from different states — but worked together in this program to build a collective, creative response to their worlds.
