Imagine Reflections on Peace cover

How do you imagine hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? And once that hope is imagined, how do you manifest those dreams into a sustained reality? These are the questions at the heart of IMAGINE: REFLECTIONS ON PEACE (Hemeria/SparkPress, October 6, 2020) by The VII Foundation (VIIF), a stunning, remarkable collection of first-person testimonials and searing photographs from some of the world’s most volatile war zones.

*A portion of all sales from IMAGINE will be donated to the VII Foundation, an independent charitable media and education non-profit that seeks to fund projects around social, economic, and human rights issues around the world. Learn more at
