Like the U.S. Marine Corps, and maybe the mob, you never really leave.  Great news about a pair of former New Hampshire photographers Andrea Bruce (Concord Monitor) and Peter DiCampo (The Telegraph).  The two have become tied to VII.  According to the news release Bruce for “the distribution and resale of images” and DiCampo joins the mentoring program, working under the tutelage of John Stanmeyer.

The release offers this on Andrea-

“Andrea Bruce has chronicled the world’s most troubled areas as a staff photographer for
The Washington Post for the past eight years. She covered Iraq from 2003 to the present,
following the intricacies and obstacles of the conflict experienced by Iraqis and the U.S.
military. She also wrote a weekly column for The Post called “Unseen Iraq.” Andrea
continues to work for The Washington Post as a contract photographer. Her awards include
top honors from the White House News Photographers Association (where she has been
named Photographer of the Year four times), several awards from the International Pictures
of the Year contest, and the prestigious John Faber award from the Overseas Press Club in
New York. She has also been a finalist for The Aftermath Project grant and the Alicia Patterson Foundation
Fellowship. This year she received the WHNPA grant for her work in Ingushetia. Andrea has exhibited
her work in Scotland and the United States. She is currently based in Afghanistan and is available for
photography and multimedia assignments.

And this on Peter-

“Peter DiCampo is an American photographer who divides his time between Africa and the
Americas. He launched his freelance career in 2007 while also serving as a Peace Corps
volunteer in rural Ghana. As the media landscape shifts, and the role of photojournalism
becomes less defined, Peter prides himself on using his pictures to further educational
initiatives and cultural awareness. His photography has been used in educational programs
in the U.S. and Africa in partnership with Peace Corps, the President’s Emergency Plan
for AIDS Relief, Rotary International, and the Friends of Ghana Society. In 2009, he was
awarded a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and was a finalist for the Open
Society Institute’s Documentary Photography Distribution Grant. Peter’s photography and multimedia work
have been published by Time, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal and others.

Congratulations to both of you.
