VII was created in 2001 by seven of the world’s leading photojournalists and by 2005 VII was listed in third position in American Photo’s “100 Most Important People in Photography.” VII now represents 18 of the world’s preeminent photojournalists whose careers span 35 years of world history.
Renowned for the quality of its photography, the group’s collective archive of over 100,000 images is an iconic summary of the defining landmarks of the late Twentieth Century and it continues to grow as the new Millennium develops. The collection has been built in collaboration with the world’s leading magazines and as such it defines the visual memory of our times. Time Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Newsweek, Stern, The Sunday Times Magazine, GEO Germany, Paris Match, Le Monde and others have helped to introduce these images to the world.
VII’s cultural position has been cemented by its many exhibitions in leading museums, including the Whitney Museum of Contemporary Art and the Louvre, and featured appearances at major art/photo festivals including Les Rencontres D’Arles, PhotoEspaña and Visa pour l’image.
More than 70 books have been dedicated to the work of VII photographers; VII’s work has also been the subject of broadcast documentaries in USA, Europe, Japan and elsewhere.
