On Wednesday, October 17, Brooklyn photographer Miranda Barnes spoke with New York Film Academy (NYFA) Photography students in a special guest lecture. The lecture was held at NYFA’s Battery Park campus in downtown New York City.
Miranda Barnes was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1994. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Justice from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in the spring of 2018. A participant of The New York Portfolio Review in 2017, Barnes has garnered attention for her work that especially focuses on race, politics, and notions surrounding American culture.
Barnes’ work has been shown in group exhibitions at FotoFocus Biennial (Kentucky) and at A-Type Gallery and Photoville (New York). Her previous clients include The New York Times, TIME, Vice, Teen Vogue, and The Undefeated by ESPN.
Additionally, her work has also been featured on Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Art News, i-D, and Nylon Magazine. Barnes currently resides and works in Brooklyn.
Speaking with a room full of NYFA photography students, Barnes discussed her work, as well as her process, using visual aids connected to a large projected computer screen in one of NYFA’s Battery Park classrooms. Students were delighted to see Barnes’ work and learn from her up close and personal.
New York Film Academy’s Photography school offers students the remarkable opportunity to study photography under award-winning, professional photographers who remain active in many genres of photography — from fine art to fashion, commercial work to photojournalism. NYFA’s photography school instructors are not simply interested in producing competent photographers, but also in mentoring artists who each possess a singular voice that will make their work immediately recognizable.
The New York Film Academy thanks Brooklyn photography Miranda Barnes for her generous time and sharing her expertise with our students!
