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—Food offers a first-look at the inaugural theme of the series. Arkansas-based photographer Brenton Clarke Little kicked off this visual conversation with images representing solitary meals had while on the road for work, away from home. He says, “Sharing food with friends and family is an important and beautiful moment of communion and togetherness. When I’m out shooting or on the road, I sometimes find myself having to eat alone. Left to my own devices I try to find beauty in a different way, capturing hauntingly quiet southern towns and restaurants that are missing the feeling of communion I may get at home or with the fellowship of others.”
During the day, Talk in Images—Food 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.
