ICP students taking Nelson Bakerman’s Lighting for the Documentary Photographer class meet in his studio every Thursday evening to practice different lighting techniques. Here is a collection of portraits taken by Nelson’s students of each other, experimenting with different ways to use light.
The sole purpose of America’s Parade is to honor the service of our veterans and to salute our currently serving military. It is a non-partisan, non-political event, and may not be used as a platform for any other purpose or political agenda. Any individual or group that attempts to use the Parade as a forum for this purpose will be denied participation, and will forfeit any expenses incurred.
This year’s Parade will commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II and the 25th Anniversary of Desert Shield.
All of these images were taken for the second half of Andrew Lichtenstein’s workshop From Stranger to Intimate Portrait on the Street. Going deeper into the concept of photographing a stranger – students were tasked with finding a compelling character or place and creating a portrait that gives a sense of person and place.
Students taking the Visual Journalism course this semester are assigned weekly photo projects which we will feature on this blog.
New York: Life on the Water Assignment
One might forget New York is a coastal city. Manhattan is an island, surrounded by water, there are ferries, sail boats, house boats, sightseeing cruisers, canals, beaches, piers, and ports. How do people use the water? Recreational, commercial, and for transportation? What happens on the waterfront? How does the water impact people’s lives?
All these images were taken by ICP PJ students who took Andrew Lichtenstein’s workshop From Stranger to Intimate Portrait on the Street on the weekend of October 3rd and 4th. The goal of this project was to connect with a stranger on the streets of the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
