ICPPJ Picture of the Year 2015
With sadness, trepidation and excitement this is the last ICP PJ blog for the 2015 year. On Friday night we shared a beautiful opening at ICP with hundreds of guests visiting our final Show. Sunday was graduation, and the last two days have been frantic last minute printing and prep for tomorrow’s portfolio reviews.
For this last post, I asked PJ students to submit not the best picture they made this year, but the one that they connected with the most. For some it may be the image that helped them kickstart their project, or an image of a subject with whom they formed a special bond. For others, perhaps, it is a frame that takes them back to a moment when things “clicked” (no pun intended…okay, pun intended), and when it all started coming together.
It has been a most wonderful, challenging and exhilarating year. Thank you to all those around the world who have supported us this year, it has meant the world to us and we could not have done it without you. But most especially thank you to each student who lived this year in New York as a photographer. We did it together, and we shall keep doing it together. After all, there’s no turning back now.
