Honored to have one of my images (2nd photo) selected for the International Center of Photography’s Exhibition “Global Images for Global Crisis,” now open virtually and live in New York City.
#ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis presents a selection of photographs collected from the ICP Concerned hashtag on Instagram, initiated by the International Center of Photography in March 2020. The images, chosen by ICP staff across departments, present a wide range of responses to recent events worldwide, from the COVID-19 pandemic to Black Lives Matter protests and beyond.
The exhibition at @icp in New York City will continue to grow alongside the Instagram archive in the coming months, eventually encompassing 1,000 images.
The #icpconcerned hashtag has been used almost 50,000 times now, and I’m thrilled they picked one of my images for inclusion in the exhibit.
For anyone interested, there’s an online curator’s tour this Thursday from 7 pm-8 pm. Link in my bio.
The story behind the photo: Mt Zion Church in Oakwood Village had two successful drive in church services on Easter morning of this year.
Sandra Robinson, who is a 15 year congregation member, said “I’m blessed to be here. This is my church. I’m a caregiver and my parents both passed away recently. I needed this. Mt Zion has been here for me.”
