Andre Wagner is a Brookly-based photographer investigating American social landscape through the lineage of street photography. Capturing the poetic nuances of city life through the streets, neighborhoods, and youth of New York City, Wagner's work explores themes of race, class, community and cultural identity. Wagner is currently a Public Artist in Residence with the NYC Commission on Human Rights and is releasing his newest publication this year, New City, Old Blues, a culmination of eight years documenting the changing neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn and beyond.

The International Center of Photography is the world's leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 to champion "concerned photography"—socially and politically minded images that can educate and change the world. Through our exhibitions, education programs, community outreach, and public programs, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image. Since its inception, ICP has presented more than 700 exhibitions, provided thousands of classes, and hosted a wide variety of public programs. The International Center of Photography (ICP) launched its new integrated center on Manhattan's Lower East Side on January 25, 2020. Located at 79 Essex Street, ICP is the cultural anchor of Essex Crossing, one of the most highly anticipated and expansive mixed-use developments in New York City. Visit icp.org to learn more.
ICP Talks on Street Photography presented at Southampton Arts Center is made possible through the generous support of the Harbers Family Foundation and Renee Harbers Liddell and Chris Liddell.
