Hungarian-born Lucien Aigner arrived at photography through his initial pursuit of a career in journalism. He learned photography only in order to enhance his ability to describe details and atmosphere in his reports. After earning a law degree in 1924, he worked as a reporter for the Az Est newspaper in Budapest. He is most often associated with his coverage of political events and personalities that led up to World War II in Europe. #HappyBirthday 🎈

Join ICP & instructor’s Mira Dayal, and Katie Giritlian on 7/9 for ‘Reimagining Captions: Poetic Approaches to Photography’. Captions often contextualize images in history or memory after their production, and are usually treated as secondary to the photograph. In this course, we explore how the caption can instead function as a poetic prompt for imagemaking.
