NYFA Alum Rozette Rago Named Honoree in 2020 Edition of The Annual 30 Photographers List

November 20, 2020

She has shot some of your favorite icons from Natalie Portman to Steven Spielberg and Ryan Coogler, to music icons U2, Saweetie, and Kanye West. NYFA alum Rozette Rago has had quite the career and she is only getting started, having recently nabbed one of the spots on the coveted list of “The 30.”


Established in 1999, The 30 is recognized throughout the professional photography industry as a “go-to” outlet to discover some of the best photographers in the world and serves as a platform to elevate emerging photographers growing their careers. Each year, The 30 are selected through a nomination and jurying process that includes the input of established photographers, photo editors, art directors, curators, and other industry leaders that are cultivated by Photo District News Magazine.


Rago attended an 8-Week NYFA Filmmaking program in 2010 and has since gone on to shoot for The New York Times, The Washington Post, TIME, Vanity Fair, The FADER, HBO, A+E Networks, Rolling Stone, and many more. She has also been profiled by CNN and Masterpiece for her body of work and has been hailed by Culture Photo Editor at The Times as “one of those photographers who elevates the ordinary.”

For the past three years, she’s been a photo editor at Wirecutter in addition to contributing to other publications and networking with other women in the industry. She’s a member of groups including Authority Collective, Women Photograph, and Diversify Photo.
