“Tipping Point is the result of a year of study at ICP and highlights a project completed by each student,” said Alison Morley, Chair of the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program. “Encompassing an in-depth slideshow as well as multimedia and video components, the exhibition demonstrates the great diversity of students, subject matter, and media platforms that ICP students share.”

“This graduating class is a special group of 76 artists,” said Marina Berio, Chair of the General Studies in Photography Program. “From the very beginning of the school year, we were impressed by the seriousness of their commitment and their curiosity. They have shown an extraordinary capacity to work together in the classroom and to think in sophisticated ways about photography.”

The Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program focuses specifically on the investigative skills and technical knowledge necessary to advance in the complex and constantly changing world of visual journalism. With ICP’s long-standing commitment to documentary practice, this program engages faculty who are some of the foremost practitioners in the field today. Visiting photographers discuss new media, business, and methodologies, as well as political, ethical, and social concerns.

The General Studies in Photography Program embraces the study of fine art photographic practices and experimental image production. It supports the development of each individual’s photographic work in an atmosphere of cooperative learning. Students are encouraged to explore and define their own goals, and challenged to situate their work in the broader context of the cultural, political, and psychological use of images.
