VII 图片社 VII Photo Agency

VISURA


 

VII图片社得名于2001年初创时的七位世界顶尖摄影师。早在2005年,VII就在美国照片的“百位摄影界最重要人物”榜单上占据第三位。如今,VII在全世界范围内代表着18位知名摄影师,他们用相机已经记录了35年的世界历史。

靠着摄影质量成名,该图片社的集体档案中保存着超过十万张图片,标志性地总结了20世纪后期的决定性地标,这一档案还在新千年后持续扩张。而这个扩张是建立在全球领先的杂志与VII合作之上的——一个封面接一个,一页纸接一页纸……在《时代周刊》、《纽约时报》杂志、美国《国家地理》、《新闻周刊》、《斯特恩》、周日版《泰晤士报》、《德国GEO》、《巴黎竞赛画报》、法国《世界报》等的帮助下,这些照片得以与世界相遇。

VII的文化定位吸引了众多顶尖博物馆的展览邀约,其中包括惠特尼当代艺术博物馆和卢浮宫。VII也在众多当代主要艺术和摄影界中特展,包括Les Rencontres D’Arles, PhotoEspaña和Visa pour l’image。有超过70本书围绕VII的摄影师们展开。美国、欧洲、日本等地的广播纪录片也拍摄过VII。

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 cover-by-cover and page-by-page in collaboration with the world’s leading magazines. 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.
