Dawoud Bey, Untitled #1 (Picket Fence and Farmhouse).

NEW YORK, NY.- The International Center of Photography, the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture, today announced the 2019 honorees of its annual Infinity Awards, the leading honor for excellence in the field. The 35th annual ICP Infinity Awards will be held on the evening of Tuesday, April 2 at Ziegfeld Ballroom (141 West 54th Street, New York City). The event is ICP’s largest fundraiser and benefits its education and exhibition programs.

“At ICP’s annual Infinity Awards, we honor the significant talents of those using photography, writing, and visual arts to make an impact,” says Mark Lubell, executive director of ICP. “As the news cycle continues to churn, and journalists remain under attack, this is the perfect moment to celebrate those who bravely harness the power of images to help inform our understanding of the world.”


Juried Awards:

• Art: Dawoud Bey

• Critical Writing and Research: Zadie Smith, “Deana Lawson’s Kingdom of Restored Glory” for the New Yorker

• Emerging Photographer: Jess T. Dugan

Non-Juried Awards:

• Lifetime Achievement: Rosalind Fox Solomon
• Special Presentation: Shahidul Alam

The 2019 Infinity Award honorees in the Art, Critical Writing and Research, and Emerging Photographer categories were chosen by a selection committee composed of Erin Barnett, director of exhibitions and collections, ICP; David Gonzalez, co-editor, Lens, theNew York Times; Kristen Joy Watts, editor, @design, Instagram; and Rhea L. Combs, supervisory museum curator, Department of Film & Photography, Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts, Smithsonian, National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The non-juried Infinity Awards were selected by ICP to acknowledge major achievements in photography, and to honor Cornell Capa, who founded ICP in 1974 to preserve the legacy of “concerned photography”—the creation of socially and politically minded images that have the potential to educate and change the world.
