VII is synonymous with courageous and impactful journalism. In 2001, the dawn of the digital era enabled the creation of VII Photo Agency. It drove VII to prominence during the aftermath of 9/11, the war in Afghanistan, the invasion of Iraq, and the chaos that followed as the narrative of a new century was being written.

Continuing to innovate despite the challenges in the media economy, the photo agency’s ethos, established by its founders twenty years ago, will now be preserved in the non-profit space. With The VII Foundation as the guardian of the agency’s rich legacy, VII photographers and their work will continue to implement meaningful change through education and advocacy.
