VII Photo Agency has announced the revised roster of photographers represented by the agency:
Lynsey Addario, Jocelyn Bain Hogg, Marcus Bleasdale, Stefano De Luigi, Venetia Dearden, Jessica Dimmock, Adam Ferguson, Ashley Gilbertson, Ron Haviv, Ed Kashi, Gary Knight, Antonin Kratochvil, Joachim Ladefoged, Davide Monteleone, Christopher Morris, Seamus Murphy, Maciek Nabrdalik, Franco Pagetti, Stephanie Sinclair, John Stanmeyer, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Tomas van Houtryve and Donald Weber.
This marks the dissolution of VII Network as the agency restructures to merge the service tiers for member photographers. The simplified structure allows all members equal access to the agency’s services and offers clients full-service support for the photographers on VII’s roster.
VII co-founder Gary Knight described the process behind the selection of photographers as “a focus on who to include to balance the agency for the future, not just photographically but also in terms of other skills and abilities, productivity, experience and story choices for example.”
“It was probably the hardest thing we ever had to do because we knew it would be heartbreaking for us and for the great people who we couldn’t take on,” he added.
