Photographer Linda Bournane Engelberth has become a member of the VII Agency.

Linda Bournane Engelberth has worked with several major projects for many years, and she recently spoke at the NJP seminar about her latest long-term project. She was also a participant in the first round of the Norwegian Journal of Photography from 2011 to 2013.

After being involved in the VII Agency’s mentor programme for two years, it was announced that she has been added as a full member, along with several other respected photographers.

VII’s press release states:

“VII is excited to announce one of the most transformative evolutions in its history. The agency has added to its fold a diverse and polymathic group of photographers, filmmakers, and educators who will help steer the agency into the next period of its storied life.

The agency is excited to work with these deeply talented and resourceful new members who, at different stages of their careers, bring a multiplicity of skills, diverse voices, and experiences to VII. They have commitment, passion, and momentum and are photographers, filmmakers, and storytellers who can help VII to develop the new channels and initiatives that it sees as essential to the life of a contemporary photo agency.”

Further, they write that this is one of the most transformative evolutions in the Agency’s 16-year history.

In addition to Linda Bournane Engelberth, the following photographs have been added as full members:  Anush Babajanyan, Zackary Canepari, Ziyah Gafic, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Carlos Javier Ortiz, Ruddy Roye and Nichole Sobecki.
