Leon and Michaela Constantiner are photography collectors interested in supporting young artists. Their collection of Marilyn Monroe photographs was recently exhibited at The Brooklyn Museum. The Constantiner Fellowship is awarded to one graduating senior from the Department of Photography & Imaging each year.
With the support of this grant, photographer Nat Ward documented children’s commodity culture and its inherent potential to influence social learning, personal development, and material desire.
The Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within a university, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
