    In September, Reportage by Getty Images photographer Benjamin Lowy brought his unique perspective to the FILA 2014 World Wrestling Championship in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Over seven days Lowy captured the victories and defeats of some of the world’s best freestyle and greco-roman wrestlers. It’s not the first time Lowy has turned his lens on combat sport: he has spent several years photographing amateur and professional Mixed-Martial Arts events around the U.S., and last year traveled to South Sudan and Turkey to photograph their unique wrestling traditions.

    '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.

    '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.

    'Women, more than men, will spend money on the care and well-being of their families, and…if a community invests in women, it is essentially investing in itself. I wanted to explore pockets of societies where this isn't true, where poverty is directly linked to cultures that undermine women's rights and welfare.'

    Kabul - A City of Hope and Fear

    Photographer and Filmmaker John D McHugh has been documenting life in Afghanistan’s capital city, its slow rise out of conflict, and the hints of impending disaster that many feel is just around the corner.  

    'As the city holds it breath, waiting for the next assault, one man refuses to give up on Kabul.  It is the city's mayor Muhammad Yunus Nawandish, who is dedicated to putting the capital back on its feet after so many years of destruction and decay. 

    He spends hours every day on the road, inspecting infrastructure construction projects, badgering suppliers and contractors, keeping the pressure up on his officials.  He is renowned for his hands on approach, fond of turning up unannounced at building sites and catching municipal staff unawares.

    He is also dedicated to fighting corruption, particularly tackling what he calls “the land mafia,” which makes getting anything done in Kabul so difficult.  With warlords illegally grabbing land for development, often for putting up their own absurdly extravagant houses, the mayor’s determination is admirable, but very dangerous. “Because the fight against corruption and the land mafia is not so easy, I purchased a piece of land for my grave,” he says, without a trace of fear.’

    Ways that Life Goes On, by Ed Ou, in Iraq:

    'The country feels like it is still paralyzed from all the violence it has experienced.  I got an overwhelming sense of collective trauma within the country.  The one constant I noticed in every city I photographed was the way protracted conflict has affected every single Iraqi.  Everyone I met knew someone who has lost family members or has been affected in some way.  But within that, I was able to find a sense of family, community, support, and ways that life goes on, regardless of conflict.'

    Reportage photographer Antonio Bolfo at TEDxEast - Defining Photography Through a First Person Perspective

    'It's very easy to make assumptions about certain photographs…A photograph can never tell an entire story.  Try not to assume, until you see the next picture.'
