About the Series

ICP Talks is ICP’s Photographer’s lecture series sponsored by MPB. Join us monthly each season for four one-hour lectures featuring renowned photographers who champion social change through photography, employ exciting alternative and emerging practices, or explore critical questions about the form. Past speakers include Jess T. Dugan, Jeff Wall, Smita Sharma, Hassan Hajjaj, Joshua Rashaad McFadden, and more. The Fall season takes place online and in-person from September through December and features Guadalupe Rosales, Farah Al-Qasimi, Marvin Heiferman, and Laylah Barrayn.

Current ICP students and faculty of the One-Year Certificate programs are automatically enrolled.

ICP Talks is made possible through generous support from MPB. MPB transforms the way that people buy, sell and trade in photo and video kit. The world’s largest online platform for used photography and videography equipment, MPB is a destination for everyone, whether you’ve just discovered your passion for visual storytelling or you’re already a pro.
