International Center of Photography
Magnum Manifesto
Through September 3, 2017


By James Lettiere


Jul. 19, 2017:  Photography has the unique ability to conjure up memories that we have almost forgotten. When we see certain photographs, we are immediately transported to the time when the picture was taken and also to the time in our lives when we were experiencing the events and circumstances surrounding that image.

If you enjoy photography as an art form or merely as a method of reportage, the International Center of Photography is an institution you should visit. In addition to excellent exhibitions, it also maintains a school that caters to experts and budding photographers.

The ICP Museum is featuring an exhibition that focuses on the 70th anniversary of the Magnum Photos, the cooperative photo agency organized by world-renowned photographers Robert CapaHenri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and Chim (David Seymour) in 1947 to tell the stories that they witnessed around the world. To say that they and their colleagues had a point of view that they sought to portray is an understatement. However, that point of view was consistent in its artistic portrayal of world events as essentially human events.

Comprising over 200 photographs, videos, magazines, and books, the exhibition is a celebration of our life and times. It is a great way to look back and think about the not-too-distant past.

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
