    'They are connected by the region, the scarred landscape and the lack of opportunity. They are united not by their poverty, but by their connection to family and land. Some people in the region have seen my work and said, “This isn’t where I live, this doesn’t represent us.” I’ve never claimed to represent the entirety of the place; that would be impossible. What I am trying to show is the rather large chunk of society that has been marginalized by shifting industries and families are stuck in a cycle that is difficult to break.' - Matt Eich, photojournalist and Alexia Foundation Grant winner

    Eich, also the winner of a Getty Images Editorial Grant for his project Sin & Salvation in Baptist Town, spent years photographing and getting to know the people of rural Ohio. The region has slowly deteriorated as industry moved out, but, as Eich discovered, strong family ties and regional connections have endured.  Read more on the Alexia Foundation blog.

    'If you go to ask somebody about the war, you don’t ask them about the war. You ask them about where they came from, who their parents are. The war becomes part of the texture of their life, and then people will tell you about the war.

    Since its launch in 2004, the Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography have celebrated and supported independent photojournalism, as evidenced by the many dynamic and compelling projects completed over the years.

    “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.

    "Since my first visit to Fukushima, which was only a few weeks after the explosion, I have visited the region almost monthly. The more I go back, the more I see that things are not changing.  After one year, I realized the need to come back to the region to keep document the ongoing effects.  One thing I found and focused on was that “unchange” is a true hardship for people."

    - Kosuke Okahara, recipient of a 2012 Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography. See more from Okahara’s continuing documentation of Fukushima on In Focus.

    Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography

    The winners of the 2013 grant were announced today; congratulations to:

    Samuel James - The Water of My Land

    Matt Eich - Sin & Salvation in Baptist Town

    Marco Gualazzini - M23- Kivu: A Region Under Siege

    Tomas van Houtryve - In Drones we Trust

    Eugene Richards - War is Personal, Part Two

    For the recipients, the hard work now begins. In an interview with British Journal of Photography, Richards says: ‘Getting a grant like this is rare so I don’t take it lightly. Nowadays it’s getting tougher and tougher so you have a sense of responsibility but the thing about entering into a project is that you just don’t know. With the last project I didn’t know all the levels of complexity of people’s lives coming back from war and this time it’s the same. I don’t know what this project’s going to be. If I did, I wouldn’t be as interested in it.’
