FAYN is a collaborative photography magazine produced by the New York Film Academy (NYFA) Photography Department in Los Angeles. The magazine features students, faculty and alumni whose work explores contemporary concepts in art and culture.

FAYN is a platform for visual expression, and it’s a celebration of printed media. In this fast-moving digital era of photography, FAYN serves to slow down the experience of viewing photography and experiencing art. As you flip through the pages, we hope that you take the time to savor the experience of holding them in your hand.  

A launch party was held for the latest issue of FAYN, #005, titled Deconstruction. In addition to an impressive array of photographic art, FAYN #005 also features an interview with and the work of renowned artist Lorna Simpson.

Student Editor Maddie Smith says in her Editor’s Letter, also featured in the issue, that “When curating the theme of this issue, Deconstruction, we wanted to feature images that were dismantling, dissecting, and reducing preconceptions both through unique visuals and thoughtful concepts. Our mission with the theme of deconstruction is to show that texts, institutions, traditions, societies, beliefs, and even images, do not necessarily need to be defined by our preconceived notions and that they can exceed the boundaries they currently occupy.”
