In an age where the sophisticated manipulation of imagery is easier than ever, and over one billion photos are taken every day, the challenges are many. On the 15th anniversary of VII Photo, agency members take us on a journey where integrity and dedication are their touchstones, and a true connection with the audience their mission.”

A keynote presentation Beneath the Thin Blue Line by National Geographic photographers Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier, co-founders of SeaLegacy, an organization dedicated to creating powerful media to change the narrative around our world’s oceans and to inspire the global community to protect them. Their joint lecture will take the audience on an underwater journey to some of the most remote and beautiful corners of the ocean, and will explore how visual storytelling can help protect the last wild places in the sea. With a special focus on climate change and the fate of coastal people and marine ecosystems, the lecture will showcase the incredible biodiversity of the underwater world.
