VII Interactive: Lecture. “Long-term Personal Projects” with Ilvy Njiokiktjien

April 9, 2020

During this lecture, Ilvy will guide us through the long and nuanced 12-year journey that became her signature project, 'Born Free — Mandela's Generation of Hope,' about South Africa's post-apartheid generation.  During the workshop, she will explain how she found the characters around whom the narrative of the story is constructed, and share insights into some of the delicate issues she had to confront within a continually evolving and turbulent environment.

For many of us, the very idea of photography has become difficult or impossible in recent weeks, yet it remains a fundamental part of our lives. Social distancing, quarantine, and our anxiety for those we love might stop us from going for a stroll outside with a camera and attending a workshop, festival, or seminar. But it doesn't shut down a conversation. 

VII Interactive is a new way of reaching out and sharing content and information, creating dialogue, and learning from each other. We are building different platforms within the VII ecosystem. 

Through the VII Agency, we are inviting some of the world's leading curators, writers, and thinkers on photography to select stories and write essays. You will see pieces from Geoff Dyer, Anne Wilkes Tucker, Hilary Roberts, John Edwin Mason, Alessia Glaviano, and Stephen Mayes, among others. We will offer online portfolio reviews, share insight on our professional practice, and we will continue to bring you new stories and ideas. We are sharing our favorite books and insights on how some of our signature projects get made. This space will be a formidable forum for an intellectual and visual exchange of ideas.

Along with the VII Academy, where the focus is on democratizing photography by providing tuition-free education in the majority world and other underrepresented communities, we are taking our entire teaching platform online. We are designing interactive workshops and masterclasses that, while held in a virtual space, reach beyond the model of the downloadable instructional video and engage in one to one teaching with VII photographers and other leading teachers directly.
