ICP Talks on Street Photography: Richard Renaldi
Thursday, August 5 at 7 PM
Richard Renaldi is a portrait photographer, who captures encounters with people and strangers on the streets of New York City and beyond. During his talk titled, Stranger on a Quiet Street, Renaldi will discuss his photographic work including the recent project, Touching Strangers, where he paired together strangers on the street, asking them to touch or embrace one another to create moments of vulnerability and compassion captured in his striking photographs. Other notable projects include his first monograph, Figure and Ground, published by Aperture (2006) which presents seven years of work exploring the relationship between subject and environment, Fall Right Boys (2009), a portrait of a city, Fall River, Massachusetts and the young men impacted by industrial decline, and Manhattan Sunday, an homage to New York nightlife and the subcultures and scenes that spill into the street between dusk and dawn.

The International Center of Photography is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 to champion “concerned photography”—socially and politically minded images that can educate and change the world. Through our exhibitions, education programs, community outreach, and public programs, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image. Since its inception, ICP has presented more than 700 exhibitions, provided thousands of classes, and hosted a wide variety of public programs. The International Center of Photography (ICP) launched its new integrated center on Manhattan’s Lower East Side on January 25, 2020. Located at 79 Essex Street, ICP is the cultural anchor of Essex Crossing, one of the most highly anticipated and expansive mixed-use developments in New York City. Visit icp.org to learn more.
