“What Is a Photograph?” explores the range of creative experimentation that has occurred in photography since the 1970s. This major exhibition brings together 21 emerging and established artists who have reconsidered and reinvented the role of light, color, composition, materiality, and the subject in the art of photography.

Organized by ICP Curator Cynthia Young, “Capa in color” will feature Robert Capa’s color work for the first time. Beginning in the late 1930s, Capa began experimenting with color film and used it regularly until his death in 1954. Some of these images were published in the magazines of the day, but the majority have never been seen or even printed. The exhibition will present nearly 100 contemporary color prints by the famous photojournalist.
