We recognize that your brand might need to start telling stories about big issues that make an emotional connection with your audience, and are excited that these artists, who have been on the front line of the world's most incredible stories, have joined our roster. We also look forward to showing its photographers' books at our upcoming portfolio reviews.
VII was founded a few days before 9/11 to challenge the convergence in the photography business when smaller independent agencies were getting taken over by big corporations. VII remains a disruptive and innovative business unafraid to swim against the prevailing currents.
VII has turned its gaze far from the frontline of its foundation. It has earned a reputation for uncompromising photography immersed in the great issues of today. VII photographers and filmmakers are as likely to be found focusing on race, gender and identity as they are on migration or conflict. Amplifying local voices and addressing the complex political, environmental, and social questions facing families everywhere, VII places great value in the power of images to tell important stories. The members of VII are motivated by issues and are proud to elevate those issues above the cult of the image or the cult of the photographer.
