International Center of Photography Museum is temporarily closed.
You know the saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and at the International Center of Photography Museum is where you should go to immerse yourself in the world visual storytelling. The institution caters to a wide audience—not merely shutterbugs and Instagram-addicts. The center does offer stellar academic programming as well as a library containing back issues of photography magazines and thousands of biographical files in Midtown. But it's only at the downtown museum where you can view sensational exhibitions such as “Public, Private, Secret,” which explores the concept of privacy in today’s society, and how self-identity is now tied to public visibility.
