NEW YORK, NY.- The International Center of Photography announces the debut of Vantage Point 24: Celebrating 20 Years, a special exhibition featuring close to 50 photographs by students and alumni from ICP at The Point. On view at The Point CDC (940 Garrison Avenue, South Bronx).

Vantage Point 24: Celebrating 20 Years is the celebration of the 20-year collaboration between ICP and The Point CDC. In a typical year, ICP at The Point directly serves over 150 students, teaching photography, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking with the goal of fostering self-esteem, community development, and social change. Since launching in 1998, the program has welcomed over 2,000 students, many of whom—including Hallgren—have gone on to pursue careers in photography and visual culture.

“ICP at The Point provides the opportunity for too often unheard and unseen stories to be cultivated and shared. While here, young imagemakers learn the craft, find their voices, and have access to a space to present their work,” says Lacy Austin, director of community programs at ICP. “It’s truly gratifying to be able to take a moment to look back on all the lives impacted and all that’s been accomplished with this program. We look forward to sharing in this special anniversary celebration of local voices picturing the beauty of everyday life and the hope for a brighter future.”

“‘ICP at The Point gave me a voice as an artist, as an administrator, as a mentor, as a father, as a member of the community, as a leader in the community,” says Danny Peralta, an ICP alum as well as executive managing director of The Point. “It introduced me to the idea that art and photography are, primarily, tools. With an image you can tell a story that can lead to somebody’s perception being changed. Students come here and they can learn a skill: how to develop film, how to develop prints. It’s not just an image; it’s also how you articulate your vision.”

Vantage Point 24: Celebrating 20 Years features images by alumni and current students including Karina Acebo; Jaidev Alvarez; Miguel Anaya; Lux Angamarca; Christopher Baizan; Roy Baizan; Tony Baizan; Ileia Burgos; Karina Chan; Faith Colón; Boris Cortes Jr.; Joselyn DeJesus; David Delgado; Nailea Dominguez; Willy Dynamite; Dalylah Ebanks; Ashley Edwards; Jaedyn Edwards; Guadalupe Flores; Jazlyn Flores; Madison Forty-Way; Destiny Garcia; Kiara García; Joseph Gilmore; Angelina Gonzalez; Ladan Graves; Evan Guzmán; Alex Hernandez; Niah Joseph; Dakota Maisonet; Dominick Marcelo; Sydney Mateo; Emmanuel Matos; Eboni McDaniel; Kevin Nestor; Rodolfo Nestor; Mark Nevers; Stephanie Peña; Danny Peralta; Xéla Perryman; Christopher Quainoo; Dion Rodriguez; Ricardo Silva; Josangel Sosa; Sofie Vásquez; Misra Walker; Bashira Webb; and Tiffany Williams.
