    '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.'

    '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.'

    'There is one moment I will never forget.  We had two spaces left in the car, but there were eight mothers and their children.  Deep in your heart, you want to bring them all with you.  But that time, we really couldn't.  That was one of the hardest moments of my whole life.'

    'This is designed for people to come at a time when there's a great party in London.  It's not meant to shock, it's just meant to make people think a little more, at a time when the whole world is drawn together with this great sporting event, that there are areas of the world where people don't have access to clean water or medicine, there's problems with human rights.  So it's just kind of to keep it in perspective.'

    Tom Stoddart speaks about his exhibition, Perspectives, now up in London. 

    The documentary film Taqwacore : The Birth of Punk Islam features still images by Reportage photographer Kim Badawi, and a screening in Paris July 18 will be followed by a Q&A with Kim.

    'Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam follows Michael and his kindred spirits as they travel across the U.S. in their green school bus, challenging Muslims and non-Muslims with punchy anthems like Sharia Law in the U.S.A. Their spiritual odyssey then leads them to Pakistan, where they bring punk to the streets of Lahore and reconnect with Islam in a bold new way.’
