VII Agency has launched a new online Magazine (produced by Scott Thode). The first interview piece with Ashley Gilbertson gives powerful insight into the photographer's journey and process that led to the NY Times Mag photo essay on deceased soldier's bedrooms. First I thought just finding out Ashley is a dude was interesting, but the multimedia piece offers even more depth to the already spectacular stories, proving a great way to integrate video. I hope there is a market to sustain this and other similar endevaors. They are the stories of our life beyond the headlines, and I can't get enough.
