Seven VII photographers are talking about inspiration in this special edition of #7withVII. We ask one question and get 7 answers. We asked, “Who/what inspires you to create and why.” Here’s what Anush Babajanyan, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Ed Kashi, Esther Ruth Mbabazi, Daniel Schwartz, Nichole Sobecki, and John Stanmeyer had to say.
This week’s newsletter takes a look at VII at Photoville, including “Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity” by the Seven of VII, a walking tour with Maggie Steber and Sara Terry, and Esther Ruth Mbabazi’s “EmergiCube.”
Check out recent publications from Christopher Lee, Esther Ruth Mbabazi, and Maggie Steber in this week’s newsletter.
Photoville has just announced their programming for this year, including an exhibition by the “Seven of VII” — Anush Babajanyan, Jessica Dimmock, Linda Bournane Engelberth, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Nichole Sobecki, Maggie Steber, and Sara Terry.
“Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity” is a continuation of the conversation begun by the seven women photographers of VII when they first met nearly a year ago after VII voted in six new female members. The exhibition is a reflection of their commitment, with the agency’s support, to help move forward inclusive conversations about gender, power, and representation.
