Missions

Visual Storytelling With the International Center of Photography

By Cherrie - 4 min read

See who won the Telling Stories Differently Mission – and got exhibited in NYC!

In Telling Stories Differently, photographers of EyeEm were asked to tell a story in a single photograph. We wanted you to communicate a narrative, be it through documentary, street photography, portraiture – or whatever your chosen style! International Center of Photography (ICP) membership was up for grabs – as well as the chance to get exhibited at Hack the Photo in New York.

Eleven photos from nine photographers made the cut. Here they are!
