You are invited to the exhibition of See Through the Noise, the first collective exhibition by VII photographers at The VII Foundation’s headquarters in Europe, and a celebration of the recent acquisition of VII Photo by the foundation.

See Through the Noise presents some of the most significant events and issues witnessed by the photographers of VII, from the war in Bosnia to the war in Ukraine. This retrospective eschews the new age of machine-driven artifice and emphasizes the Foundation’s commitment to truth in journalism.

Including epic scenes like the battle for Dyala Bridge in Iraq, and intimate moments like an American man working on his truck, this collection represents the broad range of issues that concern the VII photographers.

Encompassing photography, contextual information, and critical review, the exhibition is composed of work by Ali Arkady, Anush Babajanyan, Jocelyn Bain Hogg, Philip Blenkinsop, Alexandra Boulat, Eric Bouvet, Stefano De Luigi, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Danny Wilcox Frazier, Ziyah Gafic, Ashley Gilbertson, Ron Haviv, Ed Kashi, Gary Knight, Joachim Ladefoged, Paul Lowe, Christopher Morris, Seamus Murphy, Maciek Nabrdalik, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Franco Pagetti, Espen Rasmussen, Daniel Schwartz, John Stanmeyer, Maggie Steber, Nichole Sobecki, Sara Terry, and Tomas Van Houtryve.

The exhibition will open on July 6, 2023, at The Alexandra Boulat Campus, The VII Foundation’s headquarters in Europe.
