Photography and Imaging


The Summer High School Program in Photography and Imaging at Tisch School of the Arts focuses on using photo-based image-making for communication, creative expression, and personal exploration. Students gain the visual and verbal vocabulary to further articulate their interests in relation to creating and discussing imagery. 

Taking full advantage of the creative communities in New York City, students embark on photographic expeditions and visit major museums, galleries, and artist’s studios.

The Department of Photography and Imaging at Tisch School of the Arts offers a B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. The program provides students with the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts. Students work in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image-making and multimedia. The faculty and staff consist of artists, professional photographers, designers, critics, historians, and scholars offering a wide range of perspectives.
