FAYN is a collaborative photography magazine produced by the Photo Arts Conservatory at New York Film Academy. The magazine features students, faculty, and alumni whose work explores contemporary concepts in art and culture.
This year we have selected artwork from: #004 The Race and Culture issue, #005 Deconstruction, and issue #006 The Un-seen Body.
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 art-making.
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. As you flip through the pages, we hope that you take the time to savor the experience of viewing the art in your hands.
We want to thank the students and faculty who participated in the past three issues of FAYN. We are honored to guide, teach and learn from such creative and talented artists.
