If you’re in new York City, join Christopher Morris, Ron Haviv, and Ashley Gilbertson for “Photojournalism Outside the Box” on Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017 at PhotoPlus Expo. In this seminar, VII photographers will explain how they have used alternative approaches to support and execute their projects and will motivate attendees to find their own successful path to a sustainable career as a photojournalist.

We’re starting a new series on Facebook where a VII photographer tells readers more about what was going on behind the scenes of one of their archive photographs. First up is Ed Kashi and his 2002 photo of Ze Peixe in Aracuju, Brazil. Listen to what he has to say about this photo here.

 

Photo from Kissing Death by Ali Arkady

This weekend, Ali Arkady of the VII Mentor Program won the Prix Bayeux-Calvados Award for his project “Kissing Death.”

About “Kissing Death”: What began for Arkady as a positive story about Shia and Sunni Iraqi soldiers fighting on the same side against a mutual enemy, turned into a horrific journey that included torture, rape, killing and thieving of innocent Iraqi civilians by the ERD.

Take a look at the project here.
