The International Center of Photography was founded in 1974 by Cornell Capa, who wanted to keep the humanitarian documentary work done by his photographer brother, Robert Capa, alive. In keeping with its roots, the museum has mounted thought-provoking shows on topics such as gangs in L.A. and the war in Iraq. But the Center has also evolved to include a wider range of photography, and in 2003 put on its first Triennial, which included contemporary art photographs and videos. It now incorporates conceptual art into its regular exhibits (all of which are temporary, and change four or five times a year).
