    'Racism has long been part of American history. Undeniably powerful and disturbing images of swastikas, Klansmen and flaming crosses are immensely associated with the term. Since the civil-rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s, many people prefer to believe racism no longer exists. Yet, it is still alive and functioning in this country. Today, with the goal of becoming part of the American mainstream, the racist movement operates through both subtle and transparent practices to recruit new believers from among America's youth.'

    -David S. Holloway, who won a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2005 for his project documenting white nationalism in the US.

    2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography program, which has now awarded almost $1 million in funding to photojournalists. As we prepare to announce this year’s winners on September 4 at Visa Pour l’Image, we are taking a look back at some of the winners from the past 10 years. See more on In Focus.

    This project is more correctly a response to changes in the American social landscape: the return of thousands of soldiers from Afghanistan, the rise in suicides among military personnel, in the numbers of homeless vets, jobless vets, veterans being sent to prison. I have no choice but to do this, what with one violent attack on a population invariably leading to others, one killing leading to myriad killings, one isolated war evolving into global war, with apathy and silence leading the way.’

    In 2008, renowned photographer Eugene Richards received a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for ‘War is Personal,’ his project examining the effects of the Iraq War on veterans and their families. After publishing a book of the work, he again applied for the grant in 2013, and received it. See Richards speak about the grant and War is Personal in this video.

    'The city is not markedly divided into ‘French’ or ‘Arab’ neighborhoods. It is more of a ‘rich-poor’ divide. But the high concentration of Arab families in the poorer northern quartiers [quarters] of Marseille is clearly evident. The schools are perfect examples that depict this ‘north-south’ or ‘Arab-French’ divide. Children of Muslim families are concentrated in schools in the Northern working-class quartiers of Marseille.'

    -Bharat Choudhary, who won a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2012 to examine the roots of ‘Islamophobia’ in Marseille, France.

    'My quest following the e-waste trail began by accident while standing over the cliffs looking at the icebergs in Uummannaq, Greenland, in November 2010. I could see the results of our modern day throw-away society, discarded junk: computers, dish washers, washing machines, televisions, stereos, office supplies, toilets, trucks, cars…The amount of e-waste we generate is unfathomable, and has resulted in ecological devastation, destroying millions of families, who must harvest whatever is salvageable at great risk to their lives.'

    -Photographer Stanley Greene, who was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2011 for his project following the trail of electronic trash that is creating by modern technology.

    I came to realize that the majority of the gang members, girls and boys, were often sexually abused in their childhood. Knowing this truth allows us to understand their aggressive behavior and the abuses they commit…To understand does not mean to justify, but having this knowledge can allow us to better fight the root causes.’ 

    -Miquel Dewever-Plana, who was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2010 for his work documenting Guatemala’s ‘Other War.’

    'I was able to share pivotal moments with these women, including Kayla, as she turned 21. She was the original Upstate Girl, whose labor and delivery I captured when she was 14. Her now 6 year-old son, De Anthony, was just suspended from kindergarten and diagnosed with ADHD, OCD and separation anxiety.

    I continue to report on this group of young women in Troy, whose lives have become linked by love and blood and law and class, as revelations about the agency of their bonds unfold with each passing birthday.’

    -Brenda Ann Kenneally, who received a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2009 for her long-term project ‘Upstate Girls,’ which documents the lives of young women in the post-industrial city of Troy, New York.

    'In March 2009, the International Criminal Court in the Hague issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir for seven counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Darfur conflict, the first warrant issued by the ICC against a sitting head of state. At that time, only a handful of journalists were given permission to report from Darfur, and with most aid agencies gone, we were the eyes for the world on the state of the displaced and the camps.’

    -Lynsey Addario, who was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2008 for her work in Darfur.

    Jonathan Torgovnik was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2007 for his project “Intended Consequences.” Torgovnik followed 50 women who were raped during the Rwandan genocide in 1994, and who bore children as a result. The project was built through a series of narratives constructed from environmental portraits, audio interviews and textual reflections. “Intended Consequences” led to the creation of Foundation Rwanda, which provides assistance to the mothers and children.

    'Although antiretroviral drugs were available in the States and throughout Europe they were nonexistent in Africa at that time. The cost of medicine and the surrounding treatment were price prohibitive in countries where the majority of people live off $2 a day.

    While documenting this crisis I chose to focus on the stories of individuals. The scope of the pandemic was too widespread. My images exist as a record of people I met who lost their lives to AIDS, as a reminder that countless others seek access to life saving drugs and that children orphaned by the disease need our help.’

    -Kristen Ashburn, winner of the Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography 2006 for her project Bloodline.
