Robin Hammond’s ‘Condemned – Mental Health in African Countries in Crisis’ series. Hammond was the 2013 winner of the W. Eugene Smith grant.

This year’s W. Eugene Smith grant for humanist photographers is now open. One photographer will be awarded $30,000 as a grant to complete a photo project that follows in the noble traditions of the late W. Eugene Smith.
