29th Annual ICP Infinity Awards: Young Photographer Recipient Kitra Cahana

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, May 7, 2013
Updated: Wednesday, November 6, 2013

ICP's Infinity Awards were inaugurated in 1985 to bring public attention to outstanding achievements in photography by honoring individuals with distinguished careers in the field and by identifying future luminaries.

The awards ceremony is ICP's primary fund-raising benefit, and the revenues generated assist the full range of ICP's programs, including exhibitions, collections, community outreach, and the School at ICP.

Kitra Cahana is the 2013 recipient of the Young Photographer award; she is a documentary and fine art photographer whose work explores important social, anthropological, and spiritual themes. Born in Miami, but raised in Canada and Sweden, Kitra earned her BA in Philosophy from McGill University and her MA in Visual and Media Anthropology from the Freie Universitat in Berlin.

As a documentary photographer, Kitra embeds herself in communities around the globe, often for years at a time, in order to learn the language of her subjects. She has chronicled the daily lives of teens at a Texas high school, told the story of a Venezuelan cult, followed a group of nomadic youth across the United States, bringing images to the covers of National Geographic and The New York Times
