Photo from Lost Rolls America

Lost Rolls America has won in the 2019 New York Archives Week Awards’ “Innovative Use of Archive” category, which recognizes an individual or organization for use of archival material in a meaningful and creative way, making a significant contribution to a community or body of people, and demonstrating the relevance of archival materials to its subject.

Ron Haviv, founder of Lost Rolls America, is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker, co-founder of VII Photo Agency and founder of The VII Foundation. Lauren Walsh, Director of Lost Rolls America, is a professor and writer, and the Director of the NYU Gallatin Photojournalism Lab.

Lost Rolls America, while headed up by a photographer and a photo historian, in fact, is a publicly-driven archive that returns to the power of representation to each person who is reflected in this dynamic national repository of photos and memories. Lost Rolls America is presented in partnership with FUJIFILM, PhotoShelter, PhotoWings and The VII Foundation.

On October 21, 2019, at 5 p.m., Ron Haviv will speak at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Institute of World Affairs about the role of photojournalism in shaping public perceptions and inspiring action. 

Over the last three decades, Ron has covered more than 25 conflicts and worked in over 100 countries. His unflinching images have been used as war crimes evidence in The Hague. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore how artistic vision can help support the pursuit of justice around the world.

This event is free and open to the public. 

For the first time, Christopher Morris and Ron Haviv will speak together about their images from the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia. Moderated in conversation by War Photo Limited director Wade Goddard, the discussion will touch on some of the most famous images of the various wars and the stories behind them.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on November 19, 2019, at 7 PM at CineStar ZagrebClick here for more information. 

VII at Photoville ?— One Weekend Left!

the last column ron haviv photoville

Ron Haviv is honored that his films and images for “The Last Column” campaign are part of the Journalists Under Fire exhibition at Photoville.

In a world defined by the 24-hour news cycle, which is constantly augmented and accelerated by social media, journalists risk their lives every day to deliver the words and images we depend on to make sense of what’s happening around us. Yet never before have journalists been more vilified as “enemies of the people” or their work so readily dismissed and brushed away as “fake news.”

Targeting journalists with imprisonment or violence – be it verbal or physical, state-directed or incited – has long been a tool employed by tyrants and despots in hidden corners of the world. But the current use of widespread open attacks should be cause for our concern. Without journalists to bear witness, humanity’s worst impulses are left unchecked to fester and proliferate.

Inspired in part by CPJ’s book and digital campaign, “The Last Column,” the exhibit features the final articles and photographs of fallen journalists, plus CPJ’s #SafetyInFocus campaign, which highlights the risks photojournalists face in the line of duty. “Journalists Under Fire” presents the life and work of several visual journalists who have been killed or are currently living under threat for delivering the news we can no longer take for granted. Their dedication and bravery inspire and remind us to think about the people behind the images.
