International Center of Photography at Mana


Known for its innovative, experimental approach to photography, the famed institution moves its collection to Mana


The International Center of Photography, a leading institution devoted to all forms of the reproduced image, joined Mana in 2015. Its new space serves as an extension of ICP’s operation in Manhattan, housing a state-of-the-art collections facility — four times larger than its current provisions — and a media lab, which allows visitors and scholars unprecedented access to its images. The center’s collection of more than 150,000 works includes daguerreotypes, gelatin silver and digital chromogenic prints, and a host of American and European documentary photography from 1930 to 1960. It is home to important works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Robert Frank, Andre Kertesz, Lisette Model, James VanDerZee, and Garry Winogrand, and many others.
