What is a Future Imagemaker?
A Future Imagemaker is someone who makes images, and creates visual content for paper or screen-based media in a variety of contexts, including art, journalism, documentary, fashion or other. The field of photography and imaging has expanded as our visual world has expanded. If you find yourself drawn to capturing people, scenes, events, and other visual aspects of life through the lens, you may be a Future Imagemaker.
Who should apply for this program?
Students who are in their freshman, sophomore or junior years of high school who imagine that they will be a Future Imagemaker should apply. Because the program involves travel to Greenwich Village, students will most likely live in cities and towns within 2 hours of New York.
What are the costs of the program?
Future Imagemakers is tuition-free. Equipment is provided. Students will need to arrange their own transportation to and from class meetings and workshops, as well as any lunch and snacks.
What is your manifesto?
We at Future Imagemakers are passionate about imagemaking. We believe in the power of photography as a means for self-expression, building self-confidence, and reflecting on our surroundings and lives. Students explore the history of photography and contemporary issues, learn camera techniques, photoshop, digital printing, editing, networking skills, and develop a critical vocabulary. We strive to expand boundaries, open up possibilities, and learn from each other.
