The idea of intergenerational dialogue and bridging minds over time is important to Danny who stands as a defining inspiration to younger generations, such as with the ‘Occupy’ movement a few years back. The FotoFilmic Scholarship is intended to reflect this while providing a budding photographer or artist the unique opportunity to connect in depth and in person with Danny’s 50+ years groundbreaking career.

WHAT’S INCLUDED: The FotoFilmic Scholarship covers 100% of the tuition cost to register for Danny Lyon’s June 14-15 Seminar. Traveling and accommodations remain the responsibility of the Scholarship Winner. FotoFilmic does however assist all participants to book lodging and travel to the Seminar venue.
