My Photo on View at International Center of Photography
I am thrilled that one of my photos was included in the exhibit ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The show ran from Oct. 1, 2020, to Jan. 4, 2021, and featured photos from more than 65 countries, in response to events of this tumultuous time—a global pandemic, the Black Lives Matter and similar movements, the effects of climate change, the U.S. presidential elections and many more events that were felt and depicted in ways both epic and very personal.
My photo (above), “Golden Gate Market, 8:15 a.m. Sausalito, CA”, was taken on Sept. 9, 2020. That day, smoke from a series of wildfires on the U.S. West Coast gave the sky over the San Francisco Bay Area an apocalyptic orange glow for most of the day. I recorded some audio to give context to the photo.
The exhibit was organized and presented in much the way the photos from around the world were taken. Throughout the year, starting with the first shelter-at-home orders in March, the show grew to cover the gallery’s blank walls, which were denoted by month.
ICP describes “concerned photography” as “socially and politically minded images that can educate and change the world.” As a longtime fan of ICP and of this kind of photography, I was thrilled and honored to be part of the show. I was also very moved to participate in a presentation, during which ICP Director David Campany walked us through the exhibit, sharing the processes and all the images, which had the effect of making me feel more connected to and unified with the experiences of others whom I’ll never meet. Over the year, the exhibit grew to approximately 1,000 images. Future projects, such as a book, may be forthcoming.
See my gallery, Climate Change is Real, which includes the Sept. 9 photo.
