Necessary Fictions w/ @debicornwall

This workshop is a collective practice of thoughtful looking and thinking. What strategies are available to visual image-makers addressing real-world issues? In this online course we investigate the many ways fictions can illuminate the truth, visually. Students will be introduced to examples in still photography, film, and other visual media, and explore how to integrate these methods into their own practice, whether in a documentary, fine-art, or new-media context. We look critically at the work of photographer Jennifer Karady, artist Alexandra Bell, performance artist Dread Scott, filmmakers Omer Fast and Yael Bartana, as well as Debi Cornwall’s own multimedia projects, among many others.

Class starts September 25, link in bio to register!

Visualizing the War from Within. Today, we acknowledge and reflect on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11.

This Monday, join us in conversation with Nina Berman, Jennifer Karady, and Debi Cornwall investigating the post-September 11 landscape by looking at the war within, including the militarization of civil society; the war economy; the war training and immersive war gaming, the physical and psychological toll on veterans; and war’s lasting environmental impact. These three visual artists will unite to discuss visualizing the twenty-year aftermath of 9/11 in a conversation moderated by David Campany, ICP’s managing director of programs.

Experiments with Lumen Printing w/ @rachellebussieres

In this online course, students will explore various techniques of the lumen print process. Lumen prints are gelatin silver papers exposed to light and put directly into the fixer. Ethereal pastel tones are created by the time of exposure, the type of light, and the kind of paper used in the process. Students can experiment with different techniques to better understand the factors that influence the colors of the gelatin silver paper, such as lumen print collages, cameraless prints, and digital negatives.

✨Faculty Highlight✨

Meet ICP faculty member Jade Doskow (@j_doskow)! Architectural and landscape photographer Jade Doskow is known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of people, architecture, nature, and time.

In a recent Q&A, Jade shares her favorite thing about teaching photography. She says, "The energy of my students and the need to constantly be in the know in regard to culture and technology are two key components of what keep me returning to the classroom. My niche within ICP is bringing students to all corners of the city to photograph cityscape and landscape. I love traveling to these diverse corners of the city with my ICP students and seeing what changes over time, and then studying their photographs when we have critique afterward. I have never had two students take the same picture."

Some exciting upcoming classes taught by Jade:
➡️ Women in Photography, August 31–September 21
➡️ A Sunday in the East Village, September 26 (Full, waitlist available)
➡️ A New Kind of Wilderness: On Site at Freshkills (November 7–November 11)
➡️ Celebrating the Cityscape, October 18–November 22

@icp and the @southamptonartscenter present ICP Talks on Street Photography, a series of three illustrated talks with esteemed photographers making work on the street. 

Andre Wagner is a Brooklyn based photographer investigating American social landscape through the lineage of street photography. Capturing the poetic nuances of city life through the streets, neighborhoods, and youth of New York City, Wagner’s work explores themes of race, class, community and cultural identity. Wagner is currently a Public Artist in Residence with the NYC Commission on Human Rights and is releasing his newest publication this year, New City, Old Blues, a culmination of eight years documenting the changing neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn and beyond.

Proof of vaccination is required for all indoor events in our theatre. Regardless of vaccination status, masks will also be required for all indoor activities, including attending our galleries.

Topics include the editing process, editing software tools, sequencing principals, preparing images for release, and archiving work. Two of the hardest yet most important skills a photographer needs to master are editing and sequencing.

The International Center of Photography (ICP) and the Southampton Arts Center (SAC) present ICP Talks on Street Photography, a series of three illustrated talks with esteemed photographers making work on the street. 

Richard Renaldi is a portrait photographer, capturing encounters with people and strangers on the streets of New York City and beyond. Renaldi will discuss his photographic work including recent project, Touching Strangers, where he paired together strangers on the street, asking them to touch or embrace one another to create moments of vulnerability and compassion captured in his striking photographs. Other notable projects include his firrst monograph, Figure and Ground, published by Aperture (2006) which presents seven years of work exploring the relationship between subject and Manhattan Sunday, an homage to New York nightlife and the subcultures and scenes that spill into the street between dusk and dawn.
