Since 2001, ICP’s Teen Academy program has supported thousands of New York City high school students in using cameras as tools to tell their own stories, build community, and contribute to social change. The program includes seasonal classes in black-and-white and color darkroom, digital and new media, as well as the Imagemakers yearlong advanced program.
This virtual showcase features work created by students in the 2019–2020 Teen Academy Imagemakers program. This weekly after-school program enables motivated high school juniors and seniors to advance their photography, writing, and public speaking skills while developing an awareness of the creative and professional possibilities in the field. The images and writings in this showcase celebrate the unique perspectives of each student and give collective meaning to the power of photography and storytelling to educate and transform.
Please join us online on Wednesday, June 10 from 6–7:30 PM for an opening reception and virtual celebration honoring the students’ achievements and marking the launch of their culminating showcase.
