International Center of Photography Museum

Gallery in SoHo & Chinatown

ICP is New York's paramount platform for photography, with a strong emphasis on photojournalism and changing exhibitions on a wide range of themes. Past shows have included work by Sebastião Salgado, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray and Robert Capa. Its 11,000-sq-ft home on the Bowery, which opened in 2016 (formerly, it was in Midtown), places it close to the epicenter of the downtown art scene.

The center is also a school, offering coursework (for credit) and a public lecture series. Stop by the excellent gallery shop, great for instant cameras and photography tomes, cool little gifts and NYC souvenirs.
