Ron Haviv is an Emmy nominated and award-winning photojournalist and co- founder of the photo agency VII, dedicated to documenting conflict and raising awareness about human rights issues around the globe.
In the last three decades, Ron has covered conflicts and events in over one hundred countries. He has published three critically acclaimed collections of photography, and his work has been featured in numerous museums and galleries, including the Louvre, the United Nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations. Haviv's photographs are in the collections at The Houston Museum of Fine Arts and George Eastman House amongst others.
Ron has produced an unflinching record of the injustices of war and his photography has had singular impact. His work in the Balkans was used as evidence to indict and convict war criminals at the international tribunal in The Hague. President George H.W. Bush cited Ron’s photographs documenting paramilitary violence in Panama as one of the reasons for the 1989 American intervention.
His first photography book, Blood and Honey: A Balkan War Journal, was called “One of the best non-fiction books of the year,” by The Los Angeles. His two other monographs are Afghanistan: The Road to Kabul and Haiti: 12 January 2010. His most recent book, The Lost Rolls, was published in 2015.
Ron teaches and lectures worldwide and will be a photo expert/coach on select Hidden Planet itineraries.
