Int'l Center of Photography  ICP is the world's leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture.


Today we celebrate the 120th birthday of Roman Vishniac. Through his photographs, he was a lifelong advocate for refugees, immigrants, the dispossessed, and people who have suffered bigotry and persecution. This image, one of his best known, was taken after Vishniac was hired by the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)—the world’s largest Jewish relief organization—to document impoverished Jewish communities in eastern Europe. 📷 Roman Vishniac, [David Eckstein, seven years old, and classmates in cheder (Jewish elementary school), Brod], ca. 1938

"The forty seconds to earth were hours on my grandfather clock, and I had plenty of time to unstrap my camera, take a few pictures, and think of six or seven different things before I hit the ground. On the ground, I kept clicking my shutter. We lay flat on the earth and no one wanted to get up. The first fear was over, and we were reluctant to begin the second.” — From “Slightly Out of Focus”

This is Not a Photograph "If I indulge myself and surrender to memory, I can still feel the knot of excitement that gripped me as I turned the corner into Rue Mimosas, looking for the house of René Magritte." — Duane Michals on his meeting with René Magritte 🎩 🍏 #ICPCollections 📷 Magritte with Hat, 1965

Hate Is Ugly "Like many, I am angry and saddened by last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville. Unfortunately, these faces of hate were too familiar. In fact, they look like people who were photographed protesting school integrations in the United States fifty years ago.”
