Uit de Engelse toelichting:

VII Photo is proud to affiliate with LensCulture for this innovative online adventure that will bring LensCulture’s readers up close to new photo features every week from the photographers of VII Photo. The features are edited specifically for online distribution by Scott Thode (former Photo Editor of Fortune Magazine) and will be accompanied by intimate commentaries from the photographers themselves, recorded exclusively for this website. Michael Hanna of Protean Films (New York) has been consulting on video content and has produced The Interviews in The Magazine. Revolt communications of Denmark has developed the elegant and flexible online infrastructure to showcase this remarkable project. VII Photo Managing Director Stephen Mayes comments, "This collaboration between the photographers of VII and top industry professionals across these disciplines has produced a visionary platform to showcase some great work. This innovative project will allow the photographers of VII Photo to spread their wings in choosing the subjects they cover and gives them a unique opportunity to tell the stories with unprecedented intimacy. We are excited to connect so directly with the readers of LensCulture."
