ICP at THE POINT is a year-round collaboration with THE POINT Community Development Corporation in the South Bronx, providing a photography-based program for preteens and teens that includes a classroom/studio, black-and-white darkroom facility, and gallery.
We are excited to kick off Fall programming and share a bit of day 1 with you!

The theme of our Monday & Tuesday Preteen classes is Community. This semester they will set out, cameras in hand, to explore and ask themselves what does community mean, what makes up a community and how are they a part of their community? They will also be challenged to think critically about the role of photography in impacting their communities.
-“Why is this so Fun” Janay Holmes, student
It looks like they’re off to a good start enjoying this new storytelling tool

“I like photography because a photograph is able to capture a person’s whole being” William Barkley, student
The theme of the Wednesday Photo I Teen class is Portraiture this semester and judging from the above photo, there are about to be some striking and creative images coming from these photographers!
The Thursday Photo II teens are looking ready to get into gear and learn The Urban Landscape. When one thinks landscape, they likely imagine trees and hills and horizon lines. So what does it mean to photograph the urban landscape?
They’ll let us know over the next 10 weeks!
