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—Hope offers a first-look at seventh theme of the series.

In the words of Los Angeles–based photographer Lauren Randolph, who led this visual conversation:

“To me, hope is the future. While I may not be a parent myself, I look at the children around me and think about how much they have ahead of them. Imagining these tiny kids growing up to be doctors, politicians, artists, inventors, creators, or anything is hopeful. With the support of their parents and peers, they can do anything.”

How to View Talk in Images—Hope

During the day, Talk in Images—Hope 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.
