Experience Our Exhibitions
In But Still, It Turns: Recent Photography from the World (on view at ICP in New York City through May 9, 2021) , nine contemporary photographers—Vanessa Winship, Curran Hatleberg, Richard Choi, RaMell Ross, Gregory Halpern, Piergiorgio Casotti, Emanuele Brutti, Kristine Potter, and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa—present images made in the 21st-century United States that reflect a movement towards a lyrical documentary practice.
Extending the documentary tradition of photographers like Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Gordon Parks, and Diane Arbus, this work fits a notion of “photography from the world”—photography unfettered from narrative arcs, prize-winning moments, or the dramatization of daily life, grappling instead with the world as it is, in all its ambiguity and wonder.
In the work of these artists, life is not presented as an entertaining story. Instead, the photographers attempt to give shape to the world in all of its disarray and in so doing draw us all closer together by reminding us of our bonds to each other, to this time, and to existence more broadly.
But Still, It Turns is guest curated by photographer Paul Graham. It is accompanied by a book published by MACK. Additional programming, including an exhibition audio guide, to be announced soon.
