    The Ganges is a river intimately connected with every aspect of Indian life. It is a source of water, energy and livelihood for millions of people who live along the banks of this river. Thanks to the fertile lands, it provides food to more than one-third of the Indian population. Its ecosystem also includes one of the most varied animal and plant species. Despite this, today it is one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

    Photographer Giulio Di Sturco has been awarded a 2014 Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for his project ‘Ganges: Death of a River.’ Read more about Giulio and the project here.

    Twenty years after the beginning of multiracial democracy in South Africa, the Born Frees—the first generation of the so-called rainbow nation—have come of age. While they have inherited a free country from parents who have fought long and hard against apartheid, theirs is a story of growing up in a democracy that is complex and young. They grapple with enormous issues—access to education, gang violence, corruption, HIV/AIDS, and income inequality, to name a few. More than half of the nation’s 18-25 year olds are unemployed.

    More than a year of unprecedented violence has plunged Central African Republic (CAR) into perhaps the most unstable and bloodiest era of its history. Armed groups called anti-balaka, comprised of Christians and animists who were initially organized to fight local crime, are seeking revenge mostly against the Muslim minority for a cycle of looting, torture and killing that began after the mainly Muslim rebel coalition Séléka seized power in March 2013. Anti-balaka refuses to lay down their arms. Instead, they hunt and kill Muslims who remain in areas under their control or those who attempt to flee.

    Photographer William Daniels has been awarded a 2014 Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for his project ‘CAR in Chaos.’ Read more about William and the project here.

    Photojournalist Ian Parry was only 24 years old when he was killed while covering the Romanian Revolution in 1989 for The Sunday Times of London. Aidan Sullivan, then the Times’ Director of Photography, created the Ian Parry Scholarship, which assists young photographers, from a determination ‘to create something positive from this tragedy.’ 

    Now, 25 years after Parry’s death, the winners of the scholarship are being shown in a special exhibition at Visa pour l’Image in Perpignan, France. See more photos by the winners and read about Parry’s legacy on New York Times Lens Blog.

    Photographer’s Project Focuses on Homeless Female Veterans

    Female veterans are four times more likely to become homeless than civilian women, according to photographer Mary F. Calvert, who has received the 2014 Alexia Foundation Women’s Initiative Grant for her project “Missing in Action: Homeless Female Veterans.” Her work supported by this grant will focus on the Los Angeles region, which has the largest concentration of homeless veterans. She will examine the slow response to this crisis by the beleaguered U.S. Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs as well as the organizations that attempt to help these women.

    Ms. Calvert notes that women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan arrive home with health care issues like PTSD, as well as custody battles resulting from the strain of deployment on their families. For many women, the military was a way to escape a difficult situation, yet harassment, sexual assault and the lack of advancement opportunities have driven them out of it.

    “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.’

    The Chris Hondros Fund announced today that Reportage photographer Daniel Berehulak has been chosen to receive the 2014 Getty Images and Chris Hondros Fund Award, and photographer Preston Gannaway has been selected as an award finalist. Congratulations Daniel and Preston!

    The award was created to honor Getty Images photojournalist and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Chris Hondros, who was killed on April 20, 2011 while on assignment in Misrata, Libya. Today’s announcement follows the April 8 release of Testament, a collection of Hondros’ photographs and writing spanning over a decade of coverage from many of the world’s conflicts since the late 1990s.
