NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Photography and Imaging is featuring selected photo-based works from our most recently graduated alumni, the class of 2017. The images are varied, exploring themes of identity, history, intimacy, family, community, the vernacular and even image-making itself. These artists take inspiration from the rich tradition of the history of the medium as well as contemporary expressions in new and emerging media. Our exhibit reflects the exceptional range of artists who have been encouraged to discover and develop a singular vision. It reveals our students as visually eloquent image-makers and perceptive observers immersed in the world and cultures of today.
The Department of Photography and Imaging (DPI) at 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 with a grounding in the liberal arts. We embrace multiple perspectives, and our majors work in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image making, multimedia, new media, and post-photographic 3D simulation technologies. The studio work is accompanied by a wide-ranging critical studies curriculum. Our alums have gone on to work in a wide variety of creative fields. They are artists, documentary makers, journalists, fashion and editorial photographers, film makers, cinematographers, educators, writers, activists, craftspeople, coders, web designers, art directors, graphic designers, book designers and publishers, art historians, curators, art dealers, arts administrators, archivists, and more.
Like all the departments at Tisch, our students come from all over the world with different outlooks and desires. We embrace those differences, and we are proud that there is no single defining look to our student work. We foster personal vision and offer a curriculum that is demanding but allows students the flexibility to take advantage of courses throughout the university. We want DPI to be a site of invention where our students are encouraged to think and see as well as engage with and understand the power of visual culture. We believe in the power of photography to celebrate diversity and intersectionality, and to address racism, gender discrimination and all forms of intolerance.
