    “The building is better than a slum, but it’s still a difficult place to live in. There are no elevators, the water system is deficient, and while electricity is available, if you plug in too many devices, the entire floor shuts down. Also, there are areas without railings, and I’ve been told that drunk people or kids have fallen down in the past.”

    In June 2012, Shannon Jensen was on the northern border of South Sudan as 30,000 people were fleeing the conflict in Blue Nile state. As a way of showing the plight of the refugees in a new way, she decided to focus on a telling detail - their shoes. Says Jensen: “The incredible array of worn-down, ill-fitting, and jerry-rigged shoes formed a silent testimony of the arduous nature of the trek, the persistence and ingenuity of their owners, and the diversity of these individuals thrown together by tragic circumstance”

    Jensen, a Reportage Featured Contributor, was awarded the 2014 Inge Morath Award in order to continue the project with subject interviews. See more images from ‘A Long Walk.’

    What is a photograph if it is never seen?…Looking at the way Maier seems to use the camera as an excuse to approach people on the street, it’s not difficult to imagine that photography was at least partly important because it offered a way to establish momentary connections with other people, at the same time keeping them at a safe distance. Perhaps for Maier the physical photographs were not as important as we like to think, or perhaps they lost importance over time…One has to ask the obvious; did fame escape Maier, or did Maier escape fame?

    Saturday marks 2 years since of the deliberate targeting of M and R by forces in Syria. Support A Day Without News

    Journalism is an increasingly dangerous profession. In Syria alone, at least 21 journalists are currently missing.

    A Day Without News is a campaign that seeks to draw attention to the importance of journalist safety - please find out more and register your support here.

    UPDATE: European Parliament today issued a call for the release of the journalists held in Syria, saying: 'Without the work of the journalists we would know almost nothing of the horrors of this war , of this torture, massacres, what is happening to innocent people'

    Reportage photographer Daniel Berehulak was recently honored with POY’s Photographer of the Year award. We spoke with Daniel about the stories that mean the most to him, and how he brings a new approach to his daily news coverage:

    What do you feel is the most important story that you worked on this year?

    One of the most important stories that I covered this year was the worsening hunger crisis in Afghanistan. I accompanied New York Times journalist Rod Nordland to Helmand province and also to Kabul to document the large increase in malnutrition amongst children. It was harrowing photographing so many children that were so malnourished, crying in hospitals sometimes four to a bed, others laying on the floor. Hospitals like the Bost hospital in Lashkar Gah, the capital of war-torn Helmand province, had been registering significant increases in severe malnutrition among children. Countrywide, such cases had increased 50 percent or more compared with 2012, according to U.N. figures. Reasons for the increase were uncertain, and in dispute. Most doctors and aid workers agreed that the continuing war and refugee displacement were contributing factors. Some believed that a growing number of child patients may be at least partly a good sign, as it meant that more poor Afghans were hearing about treatment available to them.

    How often do you experiment with different formats and what made you decide to shoot Kumbh Mela in panoramic?

    I try to approach things differently, especially if the event lends itself to a different format. I am quite active on Instagram, filing pictures of daily life and outtakes from assignments or news events, such as when I covered Nelson Mandela’s farewell. With the Kumbh Mela I wanted to show the scale and magnitude of the event – this was believed to be the largest gathering of people on the planet; over 100 million people visited the area over a 55 day period.  It was difficult on the ground and attempts to cover the story with a drone were not an option due to safety risks. I experimented with my iPhone and an app that had a 17x 6 format, which I felt lent itself to the Kumbh Mela. Along with the daily coverage that I filed to Getty I shot on the side with my iPhone, framing the incredible scenes with the panoramic app.

    What does this award mean to you?

     To be recognised by one’s peers is a huge honour, especially by Pictures of the Year International which is one of the only awards that has a photographer of the year award, and in a time when competition is so fierce with so many great photographers working as freelancers. I am glad to have covered important stories this year which bring some light to the issues.

    'It takes a very fearless journalist to get up everyday and say, “You know what, I’m determined to continue my profession, even though I may have to spend the rest of my life looking over my shoulder”. We’re targets now, and I think any journalist who travels in pursuit of his or her profession, in pursuit of the story needs to know that we’re targets now, whether we like it or not.'

    -Wall Street Journal Senior Editor Chris Cramer, in Killing the Messenger: The Deadly Cost of News. The documentary premieres this Sunday on Al Jazeera America.

    In his book War is Personal, photographer Eugene Richards, the recipient of two Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography, follows the stories of veterans and families who have been deeply affected by war. This Saturday, those stories will receive a dramatic interpretation, as actors perform a staged reading as Richards’s subjects. More info here about the performance at Brooklyn Museum.
