CPW invites you to join us on Sunday October 10, 2010 at 1pm for a very special public symposium entitled Questions Without Answers, a unique discussion with the Center for Photography at Woodstock’s 2010 Vision Award honorees, the photo agency VII.
Founded on September 9, 2001 VII (which derives its name from the number of founding photo-journalists who formed this collectively owned agency) was designed from the outset to be an efficient, technologically enabled distribution hub for some of the world's finest photojournalism.VII has been responsible for creating and relaying to the world many of the images that define the turbulent opening years of the 21st century.
Questions Without Answers will be a lively exchange between photographers who are committed to documenting conflict – environmental, social, political, violent and non-violent – to produce, as VII’s mission declares, an “unflinching record” of the events that define our time. The conversation, moderated by renowned collector, curator, and educator W.M. Hunt will include founding members Ron Haviv and Gary Knight, along with Stephanie Sinclair, and Scott Thode editor of VII The Magazine.
CPW encourages you to participate in what will be an important discussion about the changing landscape of photojournalism and an examination through the lens of a world that has dramatically changed in the past decade this agency has existed.
The panel discussion will be presented in conjunction with CPW's 2010 Benefit Gala where VII will be presented with the 2010 Vision Award for Leadership in the Field of Photography.
Additionally on view in CPW's galleries will be the exhibition Questions Without Answers: A Photographic Prism, 1985-2010, Photographs by VII, on view at CPW from October 7-31. Organized by Tufts University and curated by Amy Schlegel, director of the Tufts University Art Gallery.
