In The Press: Profiles New MPS in Fashion Photography

November 9, 2010

On, Matthew Schneier interviews the chair of the new MPS Fashion Photography Department, Stephen Frailey (who will co-chair with Jimmy Moffat).

Frailey explains that this field is often marginalized at an advanced level and says he “…began to realize that art photography had borrowed so much from fashion without necessarily acknowledging it—an interest in narrative, in the staged and fabricated image.” He goes on to describe the intended structure of the one-year program, the advantages of being placed in New York and the roster of reputable industry professionals who have been recruited for the department’s faculty.
