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 Richards takes us on an intensely emotional and powerful journey, as he shares his experience working on his grant project “War is Personal.”

“'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.” – Eugene Richards

The Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography are accepting applications through May 15, 2014. Visit our site for more information and details.
