This partnership aims to offer both the experience of the VII photographers as visual storytellers as well as the educational organization assets of Eyes in Progress.
New York City, USA and Paris, FRANCE-December 16th, 2014-VII Photo and Eyes in Progress announce a series of 4 Visual Storytelling Photography Workshops that will happen in 2015 in Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Berlin.

Ed Kashi, Ron Haviv, Stefano De Luigi and Marcus Bleasdale, all members of VII Photo Agency will guide professional photographers, skilled amateurs and journalists through the process of creating a documentary photography series by covering an editorial story, refining storytelling and story composition.
Each 4-day workshop is stand-alone in the program and each one will focus on a specific topic of visual storytelling, which will make it possible to attend more than one workshop. It will also be an interesting opportunity for photographers who are willing to have close and regular follow-ups for a project that is already underway.

The following topics will be covered: how to define a story-telling project (Ed Kashi), how to find support in order to make it happen (Ron Haviv), how to be prepared before going on site (Stefano De Luigi) and advocacy work (Marcus Bleasdale).
After the workshop, the participants will get an additional review by photography experts and their portfolios and video interviews will be published online.
