"This project is a self-exploration of my identity—of my condition as a Cuban emigrant, as a woman, and as an artist—in a society where nowadays, in our current political climate, I am not welcome. At the same time, it should be understood that by living in the United States, I risk losing citizenship in my native country. The pressure is overwhelming from every which way I look. These self-portraits have given me the freedom to express myself more openly and directly; to explore how my gestures and expressions might emulate the Cuban migrant woman and artist. In Silencios (Silences), I invite the viewer to lift the veil and discover the places where my body lives momentarily—and how it fits, or doesn’t."

"Harlem is buying sweet potato pie at the Better Crust Bakery for my grandmother who lived on Sugar Hill. Trips with my father to Lewis Michaux’s House of Common Sense and Home of Proper Propaganda. Family meals at Copelands, Twenty-Two West, and Wells Chicken and Waffles; La Roque Bey’s African Dancing School on 132nd Street, and getting my afro trimmed at the barbershop inside the 135th Street Y. The Hale House on 122ns Street, where our family took turns holding, feeding, and caring for the babies born addicted to heroin and, later, to crack.
Though I have never lived in Harlem, and many familiar places are gone, Harlem is my home. My childhood was here. The history of my people is here. My legacy is here. That’s the heart of Harlem—the Harlem before my eyes."

"Punk in Brooklyn, 2019: a cultural landscape far from the fabled Downtown Manhattanscene of the 1970s. Here, we find spaces where a diverse people let music consume them and shape their lives—both on and off the stage.
Beyond music and subcultures is a world where dissent roams freely, in search of a sense of belonging, identity, and equality." — Yuvraj Khanna, "I Can’t Unsee" (ICP One-Year Certificate program graduate, Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism 2019) — featured in the ICP One-Year Certificate Program slideshow at @Photoville! 📷@Yuvsees

“We are restless beings in flux. In my mother tongue, there is the expression, life-dance—a poetic way of looking at all of life’s aspects as they unfold and transform into the serious, sweet flow of movement that is what one may think of as a lifetime."

⁣"Last year I encountered a mutilated and graffitied car outside a police station in Brooklyn. Seeing the vandalized remnants of what I presumed was a violent car crash reminded me of how disposable life can be. Motivated by both concern and curiosity, I decided to find out why this tragic wreck was abandoned outside the station. I immersed myself in a search for answers that led me to police records, archives, reporters, and the friends and family of the deceased driver. The remnants of the car revealed a series of strange connections between its surrounding neighborhood and the life and death of the person behind the wheel. This ongoing investigation is an attempt to make a cohesive story out of an accumulation of seemingly disconnected objects and events."⠀ ⠀
— Rafaella Castagnola, "A Chronicle of Chance Intersections" (ICP One-Year Certificate program graduate, New Media Narratives 2019)⠀

We're so proud to feature Rafaella's multimedia installation in a container installation at @Photoville. Stop by Brooklyn Bridge Park to visit us!⠀

⁣"We are saddened by the loss of Robert Frank, a photographer whose work changed the course of documentary practice and had an unparalleled impact on the photography world in the post-war era. Originally from Switzerland, Frank shared the perspective of an outsider unafraid to display a view of the world different than what was commonly portrayed during his time. Combining his poetic practice with a documentary sensibility, Frank produced pictures that were as brutally honest as they were revealing.⠀ ⠀
His was a vision that was not afraid to incorporate the personal with the observational, allowing him to tell a deeper story about America, its social landscape, and our relationship to our own culture. He truly changed how we look, what we looked at, and the way we see.⠀ ⠀
Frank had a long history with ICP as a speaker in our founder Cornell Capa’s early lecture series and as an Infinity Awards honoree, first for Publication in 1987 and later as the inaugural Cornell Capa Award recipient in 2000. 'The Americans,' first published in France as 'Les Américains' in 1958, documented his cross-country road trips of more than 10,000 miles, showing an America at odds with the prevailing images of the time. Frank revealed a loneliness, a dark and gritty view of a country roiling beneath the surface with societal issues not yet fully exposed, of citizens estranged from the well-being of the general population. His work that followed took a deeper, more personal turn, moving away from a broad view of society to deeply personal essays that asked, but left unanswered, intimate questions.⠀ ⠀
His images, seemingly casual and offhanded, grainy and without color, have a unique authenticity that has inspired photographers and ICP students for decades. ⠀ ⠀
Today, we celebrate Frank’s significant contributions and the impact made on generations of imagemakers, and honor him for showing us what we were not ready to see."⠀

Sad news. Robert Frank passed away on Monday in Nova Scotia, he was 94. Mr. Frank had a long history with ICP—he was close friends and colleagues with our founder Cornell Capa. And, he received the inaugural Cornell Capa Award at our Infinity Awards in 2000. He previously won an Infinity Award for Publication in 1987. His impact on photography is immeasurable.
