'My quest following the e-waste trail began by accident while standing over the cliffs looking at the icebergs in Uummannaq, Greenland, in November 2010. I could see the results of our modern day throw-away society, discarded junk: computers, dish washers, washing machines, televisions, stereos, office supplies, toilets, trucks, cars…The amount of e-waste we generate is unfathomable, and has resulted in ecological devastation, destroying millions of families, who must harvest whatever is salvageable at great risk to their lives.'

-Photographer Stanley Greene, who was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2011 for his project following the trail of electronic trash that is creating by modern technology.

2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography program, which has now awarded almost $1 million in funding to photojournalists. As we prepare to announce this year’s winners on September 4 at Visa Pour l’Image, we are taking a look back at some of the winners from the past 10 years. See more on In Focus.

Mrs. Lincoln, though only roughly 5 feet tall, enjoyed wearing opulent, bold ball gowns with long trains that were known to cost up to $2,000 each. Many of her dresses were low-cut and reflected popular European styles of the time, particularly that of Empress Eugénie of France. Image: Mrs. Abraham Lincoln, ca. 1860-ca. 1865.
