    ‘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.

    'They move one meter by one meter, on their knees. They do this for 10 hours a day, every day, with incredible dedication and effort.' - Marco Di Lauro, Photographer, on clearing landmines in Iraq.

    In Iraq, as violence continues to flare, the legacy of old conflicts still remains in the form of buried landmines. The work of clearing the mines is painstaking and dangerous, but is of great importance in the protection of local civilians. Landmines stay active and continue to maim and kill long after wars have ended.

    See Di Lauro discuss his work documenting landmines in Iraq for ICRC.

    'I was living with the Boss Man. I don’t love that man, but because of the war, I could not deny him. He would kill me. I would die. So I would not refuse.

    I gave birth in the bush to a daughter named Mamiaye. And when the war ended, we came out to the town. He left me here. He never came again. Nobody said I want to take care of this woman with this child. You are a woman of a rebel. You killed people during the war. And now you come for forgiveness? Not here.’ - Janet, who was abducted by rebels at age 20 and forced to fight in Sierra Leone’s 11 year civil war.

    At this week’s Global Summit to end Sexual Violence in Conflict, UN special envoy Angelina Jolie opened the event by saying that one of the goals was to end the disgrace that comes with being a victim.

    Girl Soldier, a film by Reportage photographer Jonathan Torgovnik, which chronicles the stories of Sierra Leone’s female child soldiers, is being screened at the summit. Watch the film here.

    UPDATE: Read an interview with Jonathan about the project on National Geographic Proof.

    Photographs from Aleppo, Syria, in 2013, by Sebastiano Tomada. We’re pleased to announce that Sebastiano, who has received several awards for his work from Syria and beyond, has joined Reportage by Getty Images as a represented photographer. See more of his work on the Reportage website.

    Sebastiano Tomada was born in 1986 in New York City. After growing up in Florence, Italy, he returned to New York to attend Parsons University and the New School, graduating with a double major in media studies and photography in 2010. Traveling extensively for publications in both the United States and Europe, Sebastiano’s work focuses on conflicts in some of the world’s most volatile regions, particularly the Middle East and Asia. He has received several prestigious honors, including awards from Pictures of the Year International, World Press Photo and the the 2013 Humanitarian International Red Cross (ICRC) Visa d’or. He splits his time between New York City and Beirut.

    On Christmas Day in 1914, German and British soldiers, entrenched on the battlefield at Flanders, Belgium, declared a truce and played football in No Man’s Land. Captain Robert Hamilton of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment wrote in his diary that this was: ‘A day unique in the world’s history’

    To mark the 100 year anniversary of World War I, Reportage photographer Tom Stoddart traveled to the key battlefields and monuments of The Great War. See more from his project Shadows of War, and view the multimedia here.

    '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.

    In this video, two-time Editorial Grant winner Eugene Richardstakes us on an intensely emotional and powerful journey as he shares his experience working on his grant project “War is Personal.”

    The Getty Images Grants are now accepting applications.

    Life in War

    While Afghanistan has been one the most heavily documented countries over the past decade, few photojournalists have approached it with the depth and perspective of Majid Saeedi. Saeedi, a native of Iran, was not allowed to work in his home country for four years, following his coverage of the turbulent 2009 Iranian election. This exile led him to embrace the people of Afghanistan as his main subject. ‘War is not the only thing going on in Afghanistan,’ he writes. ‘Sharing a common tongue, I found that I could live alongside the Afghans, understanding, laughing and crying with them.’

    Saeedi was recently honored with the FotoEvidence Book Award for his work. See more from Life in War.

    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.

    "The Afghan National Army is regularly derided as being a rag-tag militia, dope-smoking, lazy and irresponsible in battle," writes John D McHugh, a Reportage photographer who recently spent time with ANA soldiers in Helmand Province. He continues:

    There is no doubt that this is true in some cases, but the reality that I have witnessed over my 7 years in Afghanistan is that there are plenty of brave and committed Afghan soldiers who want to serve their country, fight the Taliban, and hope for peace one day. But while bravery and commitment are important traits in a soldier, there are other skills that must be taught to men if they are to have any chance of surviving in a war.

    McHugh is an Irish photojournalist and filmmaker based in London, England. McHugh has worked extensively in Afghanistan since the start of 2006. He has been embedded with US, Canadian, and British troops. His new feature, available via Reportage by Getty Images, is titled “Observe the Sons of Afghan Marching Toward War.”
