Join ICP and @southamptonartscenter for a conversation on street photography with @renaldiphotos. Reserve your ticket today! (Link in bio)

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.

But Still, It Turns.

Piergiorgio Casotti and Emanuele Brutti’s collaborative “Index G” examines the city of Saint Louis through its streets, homes, and people, demonstrating how inequality is revealed through profound differences in local businesses or living conditions, as well as seemingly arbitrary details within urban surroundings. 

For more information on the exhibition, visit icp.org/exhibitions (link in bio). The ICP museum is open Thursday-Sunday, 11-7 with extended summer hours on Thursdays until 9pm.

Life is Good for You in William Klein’s New York

ICP's Managing Director of Programs, David Campany, shared insight into the publishing of William Klein's work as part of Aperture Foundation's recent issue examining New York. Read David's piece at the link below!

In the 1950s, no U.S. publisher would touch Klein’s photobook about the city. But six decades later, his teeming vision of New York has become an icon of postwar popular culture.

Sustainability and Photography with @comoloveo.

In this online course students will learn how photography is a powerful tool for exploring sustainability challenges by working through how photography sits at the intersection between evidence and imagination. With visual documents we delve deeper into the normative aspects of sustainability and produce new photographic work that explores one’s relationship to the environments regularly engaged with. We discuss the work of many artists, photographers and writers, which include, but not limited to: Robert Adams, Barbara Bosworth, Binh Danh, Aldo Leopold and Donna Haraway. Ian van Coller and Mark Klett will join this course as Guest Speakers.

Class begins on July 14, register today!

Last chance to register for From Pictures to Projects with @griggstom and The Grammar of Photography with @grammarofphotography.

In From Pictures to Projects, this online course guides photographers through the steps of creating personal projects, from making images to deciding about final production, and explores how they interrelate. Conversations examine strategies for conceptualizing and developing project ideas, the processes of selecting and sequencing photographs, and the material considerations of exhibiting and publishing.

In Grammar of Photography, students will learn about visual literacy based on ideas suggested in two seminal writings on photography, John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye and Stephen Shore's The Nature of Photographs. Through weekly shooting assignments, lectures, and critiques, students learn about balance, tempo, ways of organizing space, the significance of geometric structure, and why the edges of the frame are important. In-class exercises examine how we see what we see, and enable participants to produce stronger, clearer pictures.

The International Center of Photography is pleased to announce the fall/winter exhibition schedule for 2021, featuring three exhibitions Gillian Laub: Family Matters; Diana Markosian: Santa Barbara; and INWARD: Reflections on Interiority. On view from September 24, 2021 through January 10, 2022.

Family Matters is photographer Gillian Laub’s two decade-long documentation of her family’s emotional and political dramas, combining photographs and audio recordings full of telling psychological detail. Her deeply personal and unsettling images document high emotion, unexpected humor, and deep love. 

Diana Markosian: Santa Barbara presents the photographer’s compelling autobiographical narrative of her mother’s path from Russia to America with her two children in search of a better life. The exhibition juxtaposes an idealized, Hollywood-like version of the American dream with the often-startling reality of the immigrant experience. 

INWARD: Reflections on Interiority features newly commissioned work by five emerging artists—Djeneba Aduayom, Arielle Bobb-Willis, Quil Lemons, Brad Ogbonna, and Isaac West—who experiment with and explore aspects of their interior lives. Their work moves beyond the endless scope of the constructed selfie and documentation of events in the public realm to examine the intimate interactions and thoughts that make up their daily experiences as artists and people in a time of unprecedented change.

The exhibitions are presented in the museum’s new building at 79 Essex Street in New York, which opened in January 2020.
