Celebrating twenty years of collaboration, the International Center of Photography and the High School of Fashion Industries welcome you to our virtual exhibition.

This gallery features photographs created by high school students in ICP’s Community Partnership with HSFI. The yearlong program includes an in-school foundation photography course, an after-school beginner’s class, and an intermediate documentary workshop.

As visual thinkers and creators experiencing these unprecedented times, our students had the opportunity to take pause and explore from the inside out. Using their camera phones and other digital devices, students photographed their daily lives, exploring the visual and cultural elements of their homes, families, and neighborhoods during this period.

As the overarching goal is to support the next generation of storytellers, we congratulate our students and are proud to share their talents with you.
