New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in collaboration with the Magnum Foundation have just announced a new summer program of study in Photography & Human Rights. Housed in the Department of Photography & Imaging (where I teach) the program will start on May 18 and last four weeks. It is geared for intermediate and advanced photography students, as well as mid-career professionals. Courses can be taken for credit or non-credit, and for the latter a certificate will be awarded to those who successfully complete the two-summer course of study.

Teachers include Magnum photographers Susan Meiselas and Gilles Peress, as well as myself. There will also be panel discussions and lectures by distinguished professionals discussing the use of imagery in the pursuit of human rights. A technical course in a variety of digital media strategies will be offered as well. It should be an engaging, provocative and useful educational program for anyone interested in working to advance the conditions in which people are living throughout the world.
