“Concerned” HS Student Photographers Share Pandemic Images

Concerned Photogs thumbnail169181

In a recent distance learning assignment from art teacher Joy Taylor, high school student photographers were asked to create images of the coronavirus pandemic based on an initiative from the International Center of Photography in New York City.

The ICP is collecting a virtual archive of Covid-19 images shared by professional, student and amateur photographers. The inspiration for the project was late ICP founder and first director Cornell Capa, who coined the phrase “concerned photographer” to described what he called “images in which genuine human feeling predominates over commercial cynicism or disinterested formalism.”
