Stanley Greene Wins Eugene Smith Award
Renowned photojournalist Stanley Greene was awarded the 2004 W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography. His most recent book, Open Wound, examined the devastating effects of the war in Chechnya. The images are riveting, painful, and replete with the cry for change.

In other photojournalism news, Nina Berman's book Purple Hearts, which puts a human face on the "casualties" of the war in Iraq, has been receiving much coverage in the press. The book "provides a glimpse into the myths of warfare as glorious spectacle through the minds of young men desperate to believe in the righteousness of their actions."—the publisher
