The International Center of Photography (ICP) announced their list of 2015 Infinity Award Winners this morning. The awards will be presented April 30 at a gala in New York City.
The 2015 Cornell Capa Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to Graciela Iturbide. ICP will give the award for Art to photographer Larry Fink. Tomas van Houtryve will receive this year’s award for Photojournalism.
For the first time, ICP is giving a New Media award. The award goes to Question Bridge: Black Males, an interactive exhibition created through a collaboration between Hank Willis Thomas, Chris Johnson, between Bayete Ross Smith, Kamal Sinclair and Jesse Williams.
The other Infinity Award winners are:
Publication: LaToya Ruby Frazier, The Notion of Family
Special Presentation: Mario Testino
Young Photographer: Evgenia Arbugaeva

The 2015 Selection Committee consisted of: Kristen Lubben, Curator, ICP; Kathy Ryan, Director of Photography, The New York Times Magazine; and Deb Willis, Chair of the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. ICP says that due to a personal conflict, Willis recused herself from the selection for the New Media prize. (Hank Willis Thomas is her son.)
