ICP - International Center of Photography

ICP - International Center of Photography A museum and school dedicated to photography and visual culture.
(1617)

The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to the practice and understanding of photography and the reproduced image in all its forms. Through our exhibitions, school, public programs, and community outreach, we offer an open forum for dialogue about the role images play in our culture. Since our founding, we have presented more than 700 exhibitions and offered thousands of classes, providing instruction at every level. ICP is a center where photographers and artists, students and scholars can create and interpret the world of the image.

06/01/2020

ICP stands in solidarity with Black communities in the United States and around the world. We denounce the systemic racism, violence, and police brutality that have endured for too long. The democratization of imagemaking has helped illuminate a deeply disturbing and horrific truth. We believe in and will continue to support the universality of the image and imagemakers as tools for positive social change.

Congrats to ICP at THE POINT alum Nadia Hallgren, director of “Becoming,” a new documentary about Michelle Obama that launched on Netflix earlier this month!

“I am proud of where I came from and where my dreams have taken me…,” Hallgren told Essence. “I hope that [this film] could be a sense of inspiration for others who have these very sort of big ideas for their own lives and that nothing is impossible.”

ICP at THE POINT is a year-round collaboration with THE POINT Community Development Corporation in the South Bronx, providing a photography-based program for preteens and teens. In 2005, the program received the Coming Up Taller Award, the nation's highest honor bestowed by the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

"I’ve been inspired by the ways in which the broader art community has come together to support each other during this time. So many artists and art institutions are in difficult and precarious financial situations, which is scary and has serious implications for so many people. But, I also think that this experience has the potential to make us all rethink what is important—or what we value—going forward."
– Jess T. Dugan

ICP’s curatorial team reached out to artists in our community and asked them to share their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Click the link below to read the first interview in Quarantine Reflections with 2019 ICP Infinity Award Emerging Photographer Jess T. Dugan.

2020 Infinity Award: Applied—Nadine Ijewere

"I think it's important to have more representation in fashion. It's something that we shouldn't even have to think about—we shouldn't even have to question...the industry is changing and I think that fashion images don't have to be a static image of the person wearing the clothes, it can be a story."

2020 Infinity Award: Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism—Hannah Reyes Morales

"It is a privilege to be given an award in documentary practice, a field that I always thought belonged to people who didn't look like me, by an institution that felt out of reach...The best thing anyone has ever done, has been to look at me and where I am from, and to see me as an equal."

– Hannah Reyes Morales, 2020 Infinity Award Recipient in Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism

2020 Infinity Award: Online Platform & New Media—the 1619 Project of the New York Times Magazine

"The 1619 Project was truly an experience of a lifetime...what we produced was something we hoped would really do justice to the experience of 400 years in this country, and the legacy of slavery in modern American life. So we are grateful to receive this type of recognition of the work..."
