ICP at THE POINT: Beauty in Being is an exhibition of photographs by students from the International Center of Photography’s partnership with THE POINT CDC. Based in the South Bronx and launched in 1997, the program is a year-round collaboration that teaches analog and digital photography, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking with the goal of fostering self-esteem, community development, and social change. The program includes weekly after-school classes for preteens, teens, and young adults, which take place in both a physical and virtual classroom/studio/darkroom as well as a gallery space. This exhibition celebrates local voices picturing and honoring the people, places, and things that keep us uplifted in our everyday lives.

    The International Center of Photography (ICP)

    The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 to champion “concerned photography” — socially and politically minded images that can educate and change the world. Through our exhibitions, education programs, community outreach, and public programs, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image.

    The Point CDC

    THE POINT Community Development Corporation is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) dedicated to youth development and the cultural and economic revitalization of the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx. THE POINT supports their neighbors in celebrating the life and art of the community — an area traditionally defined solely in terms of its poverty, crime rate, poor schools, and substandard housing. They believe the area’s residents, their talents, and aspirations are THE POINT’s greatest assets.
