The Rules are Broken: A Year in Imagemaking is a weeklong series dedicated to exploring critical issues and their impact on imagemaking. This event focuses on the COVID-19 pandemic, photography and social movements, the reckoning of a year lived through screens, photobooks and place-making, and the impact of 2020 on the future of imagemaking.

How have the rules of photography and representation changed and what does the future of imagemaking look like? Join ICP online daily for conversations and talks featuring image- and change-makers, scholars, and ICP alumni and faculty.
