“Hot Dogs on a Tricycle” has won an Award of Excellence at the Impact DOCS Awards. VII’s Ed Kashi was the Director of Photography of this short film that tells the story of Mario, a 19-year-old boy who had to flee his home in El Salvador due to the violence of the gangs. His story represents the stories of hundreds of thousands of forced migration victims in the Northern Triangle countries.

It’s a film by HOME Storytellers in partnership with Asylum Access.

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 BabajanyanLinda Bournane EngelberthEd KashiEsther Ruth MbabaziDaniel SchwartzNichole Sobecki, and John Stanmeyer had to say.

New to the VII website is a story by Ed Kashi about the END Fund’s work to eliminate river blindness in Senegal. The story shares scenes from Tambanoumouya, Senegal, where 66% of the village suffered from the disease in 1986, but today this illness is nearly nonexistent.

River blindness (onchocerciasis) is an eye and skin infection caused by parasitic worms. Currently, over 198 million people in over 31 countries require treatment, the majority being in Africa. The disease is transmitted by the repeated bite of black flies on fast-flowing rivers and streams carrying the parasite.
