Still a sensitive product, special care should be taken for best results, but beautiful color with vintage look and painterly qualities can now be made.

Bigger Box: International Center of Photography

Posted By Administration, Sunday, May 8, 2011
Updated: Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Three years remain on present lease, but the ICP is keeping its eyes open.


Director Willis E. Hartshorn said that the center is looking for a space that can house both the museum and the school. The museum and the school now straddle two sides of the Avenue of the Americas and evaluation of spaces below 26th st. has begun. The ICP still has time to look but the looming move will offer the ICP the chance to grow.

New York Times Mention.

No Free Museum Days for Out-of-Staters in Chicago

Posted By Administration, Sunday, May 8, 2011
Updated: Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Illinois legislature voted unanimously to approve proposal by Chicago museum giants to eliminate free days for tourists.


Museums in the Parks, the group that proposed charging out-of-staters, is comprised of the big names in Chicago museums. The Chicago History Museum, Alder Planetarium, Art Institute, Field, Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Science and Industry, John G. Shedd Aquarium and others are among Museums in the Parks members. The general Assembly had mandated 52 free admission days a year but the state had also provided operating money to the museums which helped to offset the loss of admission revenue. Now looking to recapture lost operations cost the Museums in the Park's request is expected to go through.

Based on zipcode collection on free days somewhere between 25 and 50 percent of guests are from outside Illinois. Better or worse aside, the change to the free days seems to be necessary.

Robert Capa Medal Awarded to Agnes Dherbeys

Posted By Administration, Friday, April 29, 2011
Updated: Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The Oversees Press Club Anual Award


On April 28 the Oversees Press Club celebrated the work of Agnes Dherbeys with the prestigious Robert Capa Medal. The award is given annually to photojournalists covering international stories and show exceptional "courage and enterprise." Dherbeys' coverage of the anti-government protests in Thailand last spring earned her the award. Dherbeys is fitting candidate with international roots and recently fallen colleagues. The freelance photojournalist is based out of Bangkok and was born in Korea. As a child she grew up in France where she was inspired by the images of the award namesake, Robert Capa. The ceremony was bittersweet for all this year as the lives, work, and tragic fate of former Capa Medal winners and international conflict photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were honored at the awards dinner and by Dherbeys herself.

Worldwide Celebration of Photography's Most Basic Form
April 24, 2011


Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day champions the roots of the now omnipresent photographic media. Interest is more widespread than perhaps thought on the side of artists, journalists, and enthusiasts; one day a year they put away the digital camera, the phone camera, the multi-shot in any form. Nothing more than a hole for light in a blackened chamber with a receiving negative or paper the pinhole camera can be made with house-hold items from matchboxes, shoeboxes, and cans- anything that is light-tight.

Experiment and explore and enjoy the long exposures, widened views, and atmospheric effects of the adored pinhole camera.
