Photojournalists commit to documenting the darker side of our world, often risking life and limb in pursuit of stories that otherwise might never be known or seen. They are our eyes in the darkness and the powerful images they create highlight important issues and have the power to change public opinion.

Support has all but disappeared, along with so many of the traditional media and newspapers that once offered financial help , and those that remain have become risk averse and shy away from offering insurance and long-term support.

Regardless, this elite and unique group of women and men continue to take the risks, continue to put themselves in harm’s way, to run toward danger not away from it.

But at what cost?

It is said that when you have borne witness to traumatic and catastrophic events, you take a piece of them with you every time, and if that is the case, how do they survive, how do they cope with the accumulative nature of these demanding events and why do they endure?
