Winning Project:
Intended Consequences: Genocide Mothers; Children of Rape
Jonathan Torgovnik's project, "Intended Consequences" seeks to follow 50 women who were raped during the Rwandan genocide 13 years ago, and who have children as a result. Torgovnik will build his project largely through a series of narratives constructed from environmental portraits, audio interviews and textual reflections. He plans to use his Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography to photograph and interview survivors and their children, and to use his images to create a social justice campaign aimed toward international advocacy efforts. Especially now, when history is repeating itself in the Darfur region in Sudan, Torgovnik feels strongly that these Rwandan voices must be heard and that the victims and survivors of that genocide are never forgotten. Torgovnik is a Getty Images contributor based in New York, New York, USA.
Born September 2, 1969, Jonathan Torgovnik graduated with a BFA degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

His photographs from various projects and assignments have been published in numerous international publications including Newsweek, GEO, the Sunday Times Magazine, Stern, Smithsonian and Paris Match.
