Gender, sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement have sparked one of the most intense debates of recent years. How does the conversation move forward from here? What does it take for real change to happen?
The 7 women of VII — Anush Babajanyan, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Jessica Dimmock, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Maggie Steber, Nichole Sobecki and Sara Terry — held a roundtable with a frank discussion about the issues facing women — and men — and our industry today.
We asked to have a look inside some of VII photographers’ gear bags. From digital and analog setups, to a flashlight, fountain pen and even a bulletproof vest, here’s a closer look at what we found.

It is one of the largest homeless encampments in the United States – hundreds of makeshift structures and 700 to 1,000 residents. Not far from Disneyland, it winds for two to three miles along the Santa Ana River Bed in Orange County, California, a sand-covered concrete flood control channel on one side and a changing urban landscape on the other – the parking lot of Angel Stadium, the Orange County Register newspaper building, a mobile home park, a fancy apartment complex, glass-covered office buildings. Occasionally a cyclist zooms by on the bike path that runs straight through the encampment, but mostly it’s residents – many of them on bikes (which neighborhood locals complain are stolen). Some structures stand alone; others are grouped together in compounds, with makeshift fences, for greater security. Dogs are everywhere, chained on guard duty, in bicycle baskets, or on leashes with their owners. Signs went up on January 16th – officially announcing that the city will clear the riverbed homeless encampment on January 22nd as part of a plan to close the area for an “environmental remediation project.” County officials say the area is unsafe for habitation, especially during the upcoming rainy season, but homeless advocates have called the plan illegal and inhumane.
