Q: Do we have to share our drawings?⁣⁣
A: Not at all! In between sets, we spent about 5 minutes sharing our drawings (i.e. holding them up to the screen and being spotlit). It’s a very supportive environment, as folks often say encouraging words about the drawings. However, this is totally optional – if you’d prefer not to share, that is absolutely okay!⁣⁣

A: Yes! If you’re in the position to support, we do have a $5-20 suggested donation, which goes towards tipping the models. All the models are volunteering their time, so this is very appreciated. However, no one is turned away due to lack of funds, and you can show gratitude to the models in other ways: sharing your drawings, following their creative practices, etc.⁣⁣

Book Event—Pictures on the Radio: Images by David Gilkey @ International Center of Photography (online)
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm – Feb 10 @ 7:00 pm

Book Event—Pictures on the Radio: Images by David Gilkey

Join ICP for a special book program honoring the work of David Gilkey, a celebrated conflict photographer who helped NPR bring vivid life to big and small stories with global impact before he was killed on assignment in Helmand, Afghanistan in 2016.

In a new book from powerHouse, Pictures of the Radio, Gilkey’s work is highlighted, showing images taken on assignments in Afghanistan, Haiti, Gaza, and other locations around the globe while he captured conflict, natural disasters and other critical stories. The book includes recollections of Gilkey in essays by NPR correspondents who knew and worked with him, including Jason Beaubien, Ari Shapiro, David Greene, Julie McCarthy, and Eric Westervelt.

During this special event moderated by ICP’s managing director of programs, David Campany, hear from the editors of the book—Quil Lawrence and Chip Somodevilla, and Ariel Zambelich, as well as Lynsey Addario and other colleagues and long-time friends of Gilkey, for an evening celebrating the work of this important photojournalist.

This event is free. Reserve your copy of Pictures on the Radio through ICP’s shop.

ICP Lessons: Debi Cornwall on Necessary Fictions

February 17, 2021

Conceptual documentarian, filmmaker, and former civil-rights lawyer, Debi Cornwall is no stranger to questioning the role of truth in images and the power of using fiction to illuminate truth through narrative storytelling. Through her projects, Welcome to Camp America: Inside Guantánamo Bay and Necessary Fictions, Cornwall often employs deep investigative tactics to present facts that are concealed or expressed within state-created fictions, culminating in deeply immersive projects that question more than just the reality of the viewer. Join us for the next session in ICP Lessons, hosted by David Campany, for a three-day lecture series highlighting Debi Cornwall’s approach to using fiction to address real world issues and introducing key concepts and methods for applying to your own photographic practice—whether documentary, fine-art, or multimedia—which will be the focus of her upcoming ICP course, Necessary Fictions.

ICP Lessons: Sara Hylton on Staying Engaged as a Photographer

March 10, 2021

Join us for the next ICP Lessons, a three-day lecture series hosted by David Campany, with visual storyteller Sara Hylton on staying engaged as a photographer. Hylton will share her experience creating intimate and personal work and staying motivated while pursuing new ideas.

Canadian photographer Sara Hylton, a 2014 graduate of ICP’s One-Year Certificate Program in Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism, travels the globe with her camera, using it to shine an intimate light on stories of resilience and to challenge oppressive and unjust systems within society. From documenting those living along the Keystone XL pipeline in Montana to her powerful environmental portraits depicting families of missing and murdered indigenous women (MMIW) in Saskatchewan Canada, Hylton continually seeks new ideas to explore and stories to tell. In the next session of ICP Lessons, we will learn more about Hylton’s approach to crafting an evolving vision and pursuing avenues for sharing her work.
