The Photography Curriculum is designed to encourage a wide variety of cross- disciplinary study. We expect that this broad based education will arm our students to effect change in the world with the art they create during their time at Pratt and beyond. The Faculty consists of practicing artists, writers and critics who generously invest themselves in an intergenerational dialogue that is unique to New York. The faculty bring with them conceptual rigor and a respect for the achievement of craft employed in their own practices. In addition, visiting artists, curators, critics, and arts professionals lecture and conduct studio visits.
