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.

Both of our organizations believe in the power of partnership, cooperative effort, and of photography to transform lives.
