    On July 16th, Brooklyn Brewery co-founder and former AP reporter Steve Hindy will discuss the work of late photojournalist Chris Hondros with the editors of “Testament,” a collection of photographs and writing by Hondros. As a Getty Images staff photographer, Hondros covered most of the world’s major conflicts from the late 1990s until he was killed while working in Libya in 2011.

    “To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”

    "I have seen people blown up by landmines before, firsthand… In every conflict that I’ve ever covered, landmines are an issue. It’s just a menace that never goes away." 

     Brent Stirton, Reportage photographer, on documenting landmine cleanup efforts in Mozambique.

    Having experienced an 11-year war of liberation, a civil war and the armed violence of its neighboring countries, Mozambique was one of the most heavily landmined countries in the world. The organization HALO Trust has cleared over 22,700 anti-personnel mines and reclaimed over 500,000 square meters of land as the country tries to become landmine-free by the end of 2014. See an interview with Brent about Mozambique’s landmine problem and its cleanup initiative by clicking here.

    In late 2013 and early 2014, five of our Reportage photographers undertook a group project, commissioned by the ICRC, to document landmines, cluster munitions, and unexploded remnants of war. For this project, Brent Stirton worked in Mozambique, Veronique de Viguerie in Bosnia, Marco Di Lauro in Iraq, Sebastian Liste in Nicaragua, and Paula Bronstein in Laos. Watch this space in the following week for videos about landmine clearance in these other countries.

    ‘You get mixed emotions, that they would travel so far to look for work. Hundreds of miles through perils. The fence doesn’t really stop them. As long as they think there’s employment in the United States, they will continue to do that, just like anyone trying to better themselves for a better job.’

    The United States’ border with Mexico is nearly 2000 miles long and is blocked by numerous natural and man-made barriers. Reportage Featured Contributor Charles Ommanney journeyed along the border and met the residents, border patrol agents, and immigrants who pass back and forth across it. See his film: The Fence, Part 1 on MSNBC Photos.

    July 4th Around the U.S.

    Americans celebrated Independence Day last Friday and Reportage photographers around the country captured the festivities in their infinite variety, from a dip in a pond in Alaska to a morning parade in New Jersey. Even non-Americans got in on the action: our contributor David Degner sent an image from a “US-themed” party in Cairo, Egypt, where people wore American flag t-shirts and played beer pong. See our photographers’ visual dispatches on our @gettyreportage Instagram account.

    'I was living with the Boss Man. I don’t love that man, but because of the war, I could not deny him. He would kill me. I would die. So I would not refuse.

    I gave birth in the bush to a daughter named Mamiaye. And when the war ended, we came out to the town. He left me here. He never came again. Nobody said I want to take care of this woman with this child. You are a woman of a rebel. You killed people during the war. And now you come for forgiveness? Not here.’ - Janet, who was abducted by rebels at age 20 and forced to fight in Sierra Leone’s 11 year civil war.

    At this week’s Global Summit to end Sexual Violence in Conflict, UN special envoy Angelina Jolie opened the event by saying that one of the goals was to end the disgrace that comes with being a victim.

    Girl Soldier, a film by Reportage photographer Jonathan Torgovnik, which chronicles the stories of Sierra Leone’s female child soldiers, is being screened at the summit. Watch the film here.

    UPDATE: Read interviews with Jonathan about the project on National Geographic Proof and Canon Professional Network.
