About the Exhibits
About the ICP
On view will be Lewis Hine, a retrospective of the work of one of America’s most important early twentieth-century photographers. Hine (1874-1940) is regarded as both an early documentary photographer and a practitioner of Modernism. His depictions of immigrants, child laborers, and working men and women were informed by his training as a sociologist and educator and by Progressive Era concerns, while his photographs of the building of the Empire State Building have become icons of America’s rush toward modernity. Supporting the retrospective, a smaller exhibition, The Future of America: Lewis Hine’s New Deal Photographs, focuses on Hine’s work as chief photographer for the National Research Project (NRP), charged by President Roosevelt to assess industrial technologies and their effects on future employment. These works, made throughout the Northeast in 1936 and 1937, capture the look of labor and industry in transition, offering provocative parallels to today’s economic challenges. Also on view will be JFK November 22, 1963: A Bystander's View of History and Zoe Strauss: 10 Years two exhibits that have had public significance and interpretation of life in America.
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, educational programs, and community outreach, we offer an open forum for dialogue about the role images play in our culture. Since their founding, they have presented more than 500 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 within our comprehensive educational facilities and archive.
