Photographs are written in the future perfect tense: this will have been. Already a relic, our present becomes a legible past. Every photograph records its creation as an unfolding story. This condition gives photography its vigor. Even as a flawed, mendacious record keeper – digital, translated, appropriated, retouched and collaged, it speaks the language of change. Its imperfection and provisional, happenstance plurality, its cut frame and layered production, its multiple light sources – scanner, sun, enlarger, screen, exhibition lighting – charge it with accountability. Its discrete parcels of time, never moments but always duration, pool from the flood of life.

The Future Perfect brings together work from the last five years of students who graduated from three programs at the International Center of Photography: General Studies, Documentary Practice & Visual Journalism, and the MFA. It proposes answers to several related questions: how does photography engage time in its creation and meaning? How do its multiple and changing technologies shape this definition and speak to what is important? In short, what civic space, what community of speakers, what values and goals does it create through the means and content of its utterance? If photography is a language, what will it have said?

    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.
