    “He was just so incredibly curious about every aspect of war and every aspect of every country he was going to. I don’t think he was obsessed with the ‘bang bang’ moments. He was obsessed with understanding local culture and how the American presences disrupted those traditions and the flow of everyday life. I think you see that throughout this book.” - Mario Tama, Getty Images photographer, on his late colleague Chris Hondros.

    Testament, a collection of Hondros’s photographs and writing, will be published this month. Read more on New York Time Lens

    Getty Images Grants Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary: Now accepting applications 

    “Imagery is the language of our time and Getty Images is deeply committed to supporting the vision and passions of emerging and established photographers and other artists through our global grants program.” - Jonathan Klein, Getty Images Co-founder and CEO

    The stories told and truths unveiled with support from Getty Images address many aspects of the global human experience; from the humanitarian crisis in Darfur and the re-awakening of fascism in Europe to propelling the mission of nonprofits through visual campaigns including “Stop the Cut” to elevate awareness of female genital mutilation in Mali and “Pathways” which was designed to inspire medical professionals to volunteer their expertise and skills to clinics in Northern India.  Supporting photojournalism, creative photography and portraiture, the work enabled by Getty Images grants has left a visual record of the human condition and sparked important dialogues. Apply for this year’s grants.

    Read more about the Getty Images grants, and the work that they have supported, on In Focus.

    “All human beings are hard-wired to look for paradise. For the Swatis, maybe their paradise is mountains, rivers, fruit, family and familiarity.”

    Getty Images Grant winner Edwin Koo spent years in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, an area ravaged by humans and nature but nonetheless beloved by its inhabitants. Through his time with the Swatis he came to reconcile his own notions of what paradise means. Koo recently published a book of the work, titled ‘Paradise.’

    Read more on New York Times Lens, and in this in-progress blog post that Koo wrote while working on the project.

    Remembering AFP Reporter Sardar Ahmad

    Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of colleague Sardar Ahmad, the 40-year-old Afghan journalist with Agence France-Presse, was shot dead along in Kabul with his wife, his 5-year-old daughter Nilofar and 3-year-old son Omar. His youngest son Abuzar, not even two, is in a coma.

    NBC News previews “Testament,” new book of words and images by Chris Hondros, the Getty Images photographer who was killed in Libya in 2011.

    [Hondros cared] deeply about the suffering he witnesses, arguing passionately for intervention in Liberia in 2003, but every now and then takes a step back and wonders at the absurdity of his situation. “Why am I here?… Why am I hanging on the side of an Afghan mountain. I’m not in the Army; I didn’t sign up for this. I should be back home, watching TV or canoodling in bed or having an espresso.” Chris died tragically in his prime, but there’s no sign that he in any way regretted his life’s trajectory up until that point: “The satisfaction of photographing our era’s most important issues far outweighs any discomfort, or even fear.”

    Walid Ahmed, a supporter of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy, photographed on July 3, 2013, near a protest in Cairo. Mr. Ahmed is from Assiut, a majority christian city in southern Egypt. “I came to this protest because this is the first time we have chosen a president and I feel he should finish his term,” he said. “I love Morsy because he is finally leading the country in a manner we want, and he respects us. Morsy has ended the war on Islam and there is more freedom.”

    In Egypt on Monday a judge sentenced 529 defendants to death, convicting them of murdering a police officer in anger at the ouster of the Islamist president. Legal experts interviewed by the New York Times called it the harshest mass conviction in modern Egyptian history.
