From May 9 – 11, the newly formed VII Academy, a project of the VII Foundation and partner of VII Photo Agency, will host a three-day festival of photography and visual journalism in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This educational event is free and open to all, and includes presentations by VII Photo Agency photographers, discussion panels focusing on media and visual journalism, film screenings, portfolio reviews, and much more.

Sarajevo and the Balkans are deeply embedded in the culture of VII. The agency was built on the relationships established during the war in the 1990s by the founding members of the agency. The late Alexandra Boulat, Ron Haviv, Gary Knight, and Christopher Morris all photographed the war with Paul Lowe, who now lives in Sarajevo. Ziyah Gafic was born in Sarajevo and was raised there during the war of the 1990s, and he and Sara Terry have immersed themselves in representing post-conflict Bosnia.

Based in Sarajevo, the VII Academy is building a permanent presence in the Balkans to work with local cultural institutions and create an education platform to train young men and women in visual media practice.

    Nepal has been called an impossible phantasmagoria, a land of harsh realities infused with the surreal. Like a young Tharu girl perched on a support post of a traditional long house, seeming to levitate, in the remote Dang Valley, Nepal seems to levitate between East and West, past and future. This is the magic of Nepal, a country of eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains including Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth.

    Kosovar Albanian refugees try to get the last bread thrown from an aid truck in the biggest refugee camp in Kukes, Albania, in April 1999. After the 1997 collapse of Albania’s economy, widespread looting and ethnic conflict broke out in Kosovo, a majority Albanian province in southern Serbia, which led to the mass exodus of thousands of ethnic Albanians in 1998 and early 1999; nearly all of these 850,000 refugees returned to Kosovo starting in mid-1999, many seeking revenge against the Serbs.
