Eugene Richards Wins Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography

This just in:
The brilliant, compassionate photographer, Eugene Richards will receive $20,000 and collaborative support from Getty Images photo editors as he pursues his documentary photography projects.

He began work on “War is Personal” in 2006 as a series of photo and text essays focused on the lives of people in the US who’d been profoundly affected by the war in Iraq. Eugene’s grant will be used to move the project forward in the coming months. “Eight photographic essays are now completed,” he commented. “With the assistance of a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography, I will undertake at least seven more.” At the completion of the project there will be a book and a multimedia piece that interposes photographs with personal writings and interviews to advance the dialogue on the Iraq war. Based in New York, Eugene is a noted photojournalist, writer and filmmaker.

We met Mr. Richards last year at the Lucie Awards where he was honored with a Documentarian Achievement award.
