As Danny told TIME’s Lightbox:

“I’ve been . . . interested in that educational spirit that VII has had since its inception. I spend the majority of my time in the field, working on long-form pieces and assignments, but I’m also an educator.

“Never before have so many people been personally engaged in photography. . . . We need photography that engages people with issues that are often beyond their small spheres and forces them to think about the other.”

Praying at New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church, Detroit, Michigan, June 2, 2015, from Danny Wilcox Frazier’s Instagram @dannywilcoxfrazier.” Today it was announced that I am a new member of VII Photo. My thanks to the photographers of VII. It is an honor to join the ranks of such talented and inspired women and men.”

In the transcript below Danny Wilcox Frazier and Alexa Dilworth of the Center for Documentary Studies talk about getting started in photography, staying home in Iowa, photo books as educations, and long-term documentary projects.
