This virtual showcase features work created by students in the International Center of Photography's 2023–2024 Teen Academy Imagemakers program. This weekly after-school program enables motivated high school juniors, seniors, and gap year students to advance their photography, writing, and public speaking skills while developing an awareness of the creative and professional possibilities in the field. The featured images and writings celebrate the unique perspectives of each student and give collective meaning to the power of photography and storytelling to educate and transform.
