The forthcoming new book #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis by the International Center for Photography, is the story and a celebration of a wild idea, dreamed up in deep uncertainty, at the onset of what turned out to be a tumultuous year.
When the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown intervened in an epic exhibition planned by the International Center of Photography in New York City, an innovative plan was hatched to instead make the exhibition digital by having followers worldwide upload images of their lives over the course of 2020. Now the book #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis, to be published by G Editions on October 19, 2021, presents 820 photographs from 60,000 that were submitted, and chronicles month by month what the world experienced during this unprecedented time. Reflected in these pages are beauty, activism and courage, not to mention proof of a photographic endeavor that documents the most staggering event in recent history.
