    ‘A cluster munition is the size of a golf ball. It’s rusted, it blends in with the dead leaves. These boys are just playing around their villages, they find something like that, they pick it up. There has been no education about this whatsoever. The only way the boys in the village learned was after their friends were killed.’  - Paula Bronstein, Reportage by Getty Images photographer

    Unexploded munitions, the remnants of American cluster bombing in the 1960s, remain buried in the earth in Southeast Asia. As part of a large project undertaken by Reportage photographers for the ICRC, Paula Bronstein traveled to Laos to document how the bombs are still wreaking havoc on the local population. She discovered a lack of education about the dangers, and met the mothers of children who were killed by munitions.

    'Afghanistan: Between Life and War'

    Afghanistan is a country that much reported on in the West but little understood, says Paula Bronstein, a photojournalist who has worked in the country on and off for the last 12 years. In her proposed book, “Afghanistan: Between Life and War,” she attempts to show how the Afghan people constructed their lives against the backdrop of incessant war and Taliban insurgency, and hopes to provide a voice to people who have none.

    Paula has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for the book and must reach her goal by Sunday, Dec. 7.

    Paula, who is represented by Reportage by Getty Images, is an award-winning and internationally published photojournalist with over 30 years in the business. Originally from Boston, Bronstein worked for newspapers including The Hartford Courant and The Chicago Tribune before moving overseas to Thailand in 1998 to cover the Asian region including Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    ‘I’ve tried to look at a lot of women’s issues, because I can. I can get better access than a man can…In countries where females are abused, where there’s a lack of human rights overall, they definitely reach out to other females. Why? Because they know I care. I’m there not trying to just photograph the situation, I’m there because I care about the story.’

    Paula Bronstein talks with Australia’s ABC radio about her work as a photographer and how she connects with her subjects. Listen to the full interview here.

    In 2010, photographer Paula Bronstein documented a special section of the Marines working in Afghanistan - a Female Engagement Team (FET). Muslim tradition often forbids interaction between men and women, so the FET was created in order to engage with the local female population.

    Yesterday, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that the Pentagon would formally open combat roles to female soldiers.
