Mentoring and nurturing upcoming stars of photography ...

EUGENE REZNIK, AMERICAN PHOTO MAGAZINE:

"Since 1992, SVA’s Mentors program, organized by BFA Photography Department chair and editor of Dear Dave magazine, Stephen Frailey, has been pairing several dozen undergraduate seniors with some of the most influential, but also generous and enthusiastic figures in the photo world. They are curators, editors, gallerists, collectors, artists, writers, and so forth. In many cases over the two decades, the relationships with the mentors and the exposure gained from the annual exhibition of Mentors program work, have jumpstarted early careers."
