FAYN is a collaborative photography magazine produced by the New York Film Academy Photography Department. The magazine features students, faculty, and alumni whose work explores contemporary concepts in art and culture.

We are a community of global visual storytellers, with students and faculty from around the world. We thrive in our constant engagement with a multitude of perspectives and aesthetic practices. We mine our diverse understandings of cultural identity, beauty, and symbolism in the collective pursuit of artmaking. As faculty advisors and editors, we see the inspiring voices of emerging image-makers represented in this magazine, alongside the deep values that guide our program.

FAYN is a platform for visual expression and a celebration of printed media. In this fast-moving era of digital imaging, FAYN serves to slow down the experience of viewing photography and art. We hope that you take the time to savor the experience of flipping through the pages.

We want to thank the students and faculty who participated in the inaugural issues of FAYN. We are honored to guide, teach and learn from such creative and talented artists.


As one of the leading photography schools, the New York Film Academy offers students the remarkable opportunity to study under award-winning, professional photographers who remain active in many genres of photography, from fine art to fashion, commercial work to photojournalism. The Academy’s photography instructors are not simply interested in producing competent photographers, but artists who each possess a singular voice that will make their work immediately recognizable. Furthermore, the curriculum and faculty at the photography school are also focused on preparing students to apply what they have learned in class and in their coursework to the real world. Simply put, students receive an extraordinary educational experience, designed to best prepare them to achieve their professional goals.
