Being & Becoming

the words being & becoming are superimposed on a grainy graphic with ink splatters
The Fashion Institute of Technology proudly presents student work from the BFA Photography program in their first exhibition titled Being & Becoming. Twenty-eight students collaborate in this showcase featuring large-scale printed work and photo-based installations. Equipped with techniques developed through previous semesters and with the support of Adjunct Professors Tiffany Smith and Nat Ward, students have actualized their creative concepts. Through connective themes of identity, intimacy, and creative space, students share in the ever-changing process of “Becoming.” This exhibition serves as a celebration of each artist’s personal vision and dedication to their craft.

By Being, we are Becoming.
