Josephine Herrick Project Honors VII

Josephine Herrick Project

VII Agency is pleased to report that we will be honored by the Josephine Herrick Project (JHP) at its 2018 Spring Photography Auction and Party on June 5, at Aperture Gallery, 47 West 27th Street in New York City. JHP is a New York City-based charity dedicated to helping underserved communities to express themselves through photography, working with disabled military veterans, youth at risk and from new immigrant and refugee families among others. JHP was awarded the 2017 Lucie Humanitarian Award, the first non-profit organization to be given this prestigious honor. Both of our organizations believe in the power of partnership, cooperative effort, and of photography to transform lives.

Nichole Sobecki has received the 2018 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the New Media category for her work on the Foreign Policy series “Europe Slams Its Gates.”

The five-part series of photos and reporting on the millions of people who will be streaming from Africa to Europe in the coming decade, and the efforts by governments to stop them, was supported by Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

PDN Photo Annual 2018

Ilvy Njiokiktjien and Sara Terry are included in the PDN Photo Annual 2018.

Ilvy’s photo of a 12-year-old boy named John Francis in an Internally Displaced Persons Camp in Wau, South Sudan was included in the Photojournalism / Documentary category.

Sara’s book, “War is Only Half the Story: Ten Years of the Aftermath Project,” was included in the photo books category. The book is a ten-year retrospective of the work of the documentary photography program The Aftermath Project, which has supported post-conflict storytelling by some of the world’s best photographers.

The Pierre & Alexandra Boulat Award, supported by LaScam (société civile des auteurs multimedia), is designed to help a photographer carry out an original reporting project through a €8000 endowment.

The award will be presented to a professional photographer of any age, sex or nationality who wishes to cover a social, economic, political or cultural issue in a journalistic manner. The award is given in order to allow the winner to produce a story that has never been told but that the photographer cannot find support for within the media

Between the Lines examines the over policed and under protected, life between us and them: examining police-community relations.

Congratulations to Carlos Javier Ortiz who is one of three recipients of the 2018 CatchLight Fellowship. In its second year, the CatchLight Fellowship continues to recognize photographers for their excellence in depicting visual stories of crucial issues — ideally motivating action for social change.

Carlos won for his project “Between the Lines” which looks at relations between the communities of Del Paso Heights and South Sacramento in California and the police. Learn more about his project and the fellowship in this article in the Washington Post.
