    "The city of Mostar, which now lies in the southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, still shows signs of war, both physically and psychologically. Bullet-riddled and half-leveled buildings remain untouched and un-repaired, standing as de facto monuments to the lives lost in the region’s ethnic clashes. Official monuments to the war have been destroyed, pointing to lingering tensions.’It’s still divided,the government is still the same people from 20 years before.’"

    Reportage Featured Photographer Giles Clarke recently visited Mostar to explore the unrest that still simmers there. See more from his series for Business Insider - 'People Still Hate Each Other': Inside A Bosnian City That Hasn't Recovered From The Civil War.

    Faces Of World War I By Steve Pyke

     “ The war had always gripped me. As a child I met and spoke openly to the old timers who had fought, including  my grandfather Arthur Pyke who served as a cabin boy at the battle of Jutland in 1916. I realized that by chance of birth had I been born in the late 19th century, then undoubtedly I would have served too. By the time I completed this project to photograph the veterans of WWI – in their homes and in multiple countries,  most of those who had fought had passed away. As the centenary of the War approaches it’s a poignant time to revisit these faces of WWI.”

    During periods of armed violence, providing health care can become an extraordinarily hazardous undertaking beset by difficulties and threats to safety. Medical teams find themselves operating without basic equipment, and sometimes without even electricity or water. To evacuate or to reach the wounded and the sick in conflict zones, health-care workers sometimes have to put themselves at great risk.

    Health Care in Danger: An Issue for Our Time, a new photo exhibition by the International Committee of the Red Cross, shows that ‘violence against health care is not a recent phenomenon and has never been confined to one place or one period.’

    'I could see gas masks all around and [the fighters] were all talking about this. Everyone was already having problems with their eyes. One day I did an interview with the commander of the little position. These guys are used to shelling, fighting, snipers. That’s their life. But chemicals, you never know. It has a real psychological effect. You cannot smell it or see it for certain. Sometimes there is not even smoke.

    At first I was scared with what I saw and what I was carrying, because we knew it was something that could change everything….My colleague and I had a long argument. Should we release everything when we were stuck in Damascus? Do we run the story and send it to the newspapers right away? But then we would be a bigger target, so we decided to not do it.’
