My Visit to the International Center for Photography

Today I took a subway ride to the Lower East Side to see what was in the International Center of Photography.  It is a relatively small museum that offered four exhibits:

  • Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment.  There were photographs taken worldwide displayed from the 1930s and 1940s.  His influential photobook was described as "a Bible for photographers."
  • Elliot Erwitt: Pittsburgh 1950 - Back then it was an industrial city.  Obviously much has changed over 68 years.
  • Multiply, Identify, Her:  A collage of works by an intergenerational group of woman artists exploring the construction and implications of hybrid and multiple identities.
  • RFK Train:  The People's View.  This exhibit is timely since it is the 50th anniversary of his assassination.  There are audio and video remembrances of bystanders who viewed the train with his casket as it traveled from NYC to Arlington National Cemetery.
