Exactly one year before voters go to the polls on November 3, 2020 — and three months before Iowans gather for their caucuses — we at VII Photo are launching the first chapter of our year-long collective election coverage, “America, Again.”

This project emerged amongst a few of the VII photographers with the intention of focussing attention on the issues that will dominate the US election. The VII Foundation and VII Academy have stepped in to support the project in recognition of the importance of critical and independent storytelling in civic discourse. We will produce stories on material issues that people worldwide are wrangling with, not only Americans. Issues that are used to divide us, and that allow populist politicians to undermine the values that are foundational to our societies.

Maggie Steber Wins Lucie Award

maggie steber wins lucie award
At the 17th Annual Lucie Awards, Emeritus Member Maggie Steber was honored with a Lucie Award for her achievement in photojournalism at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The Lucie Awards is the premiere annual event honoring the greatest achievements in photography and is the signature program of the Lucie Foundation.

Espen Rasmussen’s “Hard.Land” is on view at the 8th edition of FotoArtFestival in Bielsko-Bia?a, Poland, from October 11 to 27, 2019. In “Hard.Land,” Espen investigates what has happened to the former middle class in the Rust Belt, and the consequences of low income, unemployment, drugs, and their departure from the former industrial towns.

As part of the “Authors’ Marathon” on Saturday, October 12, Espen will give a presentation about his long-term projects. In addition to “Hard.Land,” Espen will discuss the project “Transit,” about refugees and displaced people around the world, and “White Rage,” a one-year journey among right-wing people in the U.S. and Europe.

In December 2019 it will be forty years since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The country has been torn apart by foreign political and military meddling as well as internal strife ever since. The challenges of sustainable peace in Afghanistan cannot be overestimated.
What follows is a story not about troops in battle, but of a country and its people, locked in history.
