Talk in Images, presented by ICP in partnership with Huawei, explores the power of photography to act as a universal language. Notable visual storytellers lead conversations around topics such as “love,” “work,” and “hope” through photos posted on social media. A laboratory of sorts, the series explores the power of imagery to spark meaningful, socially engaged, and conscientious visual conversations on a global scale.

Talk in Images—Body offers a first-look at the sixth theme of the series.

In the words of Brooklyn-based photographer Aundre Larrow, who led this visual conversation:

“The human body is incredible. The ability to hear, leap, communicate, and create all wrapped into a single entity. It's easily the greatest piece of technology on earth. For my submission, I wanted to share images I captured of the New York City Ballet. These dancers were incredible. Every piece of movement was graceful beyond belief and their bodies were a testament to their dedication. At the same time, there were lovely, humble, and hilarious humans to spend a morning with. I stand in awe of what we created together and am thankful that I had the pleasure of documenting them.”

How to View Talk in Images—Body

During the day, Talk in Images—Body can be viewed on monitors inside the ICP Museum and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the Museum and are most visible after sunset. Learn more about Projected.

About Aundre Larrow

On his fifteenth birthday, Aundre Larrow received a Minolta film camera from his high school theater teacher as a gift. Within three months, he had blown all of his money processing film filled with portraits of fast friends and loved ones. Ten years later, not much has changed. Larrow is a Brooklyn-based portrait photographer who has spent the last few years shooting editorial and lifestyle content for his clients. He most recently shot the NCAA Tournament, New York Fashion Week, and a portrait project about immigration. Throughout the years, his work has always pursued the truth that can be found in portraiture and his current work as an Adobe Creative Resident is the next chapter of that.
