VII Photo Agency is excited to announce the addition of two new members, as well as a new CEO and Chairman of the Board, Richard D. Schoenberg. As of June 2nd, 2015, VII is proud to accept two new photographers; Sarker Protick and Danny Wilcox Frazier, into the agency.
Sarker Protick, of Dhaka, Bangladesh, will bring to the group stories from his home country, challenging the common stereotypes and expectations of visual storytelling through his unique vision. Protick states that he “questions the everyday, and finds exuberance in the ordinary, the real in the unreal”, and is excited to share his creative ideas with the other members if VII.
Danny Wilcox Frazier, based in Iowa, also brings to the table his own unique concept of visual storytelling as he documents the “emotional landscapes of isolated communities” in Middle America. On joining VII, Frazier writes; “The members of VII are among the most gifted and passionate photographers working in this tradition today and collectively the agency strives to not just record the world, but educate and change it.”
“Both Sarker Protick and Danny Wilcox Frazier are known for their comfort and ability to tell stories about their own frontiers, be it Bangladesh or Middle America”, VII writes, “With the addition of Sarker Protick and Danny Wilcox Frazier, VII is steadfast in its continuing efforts to tell stories on an intimate yet global scale.”
