Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs

October 12, 2009

Nov. 21, 2009 – Jan. 24, 2010 The most comprehensive display of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever shown in the United States will open on Saturday, November 21, at the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum in Independence and run through January 24, 2010.
Of the millions of photographs seen in newspapers each year, only two Pulitzer photography prizes are given – one for spot or breaking news and the other for feature photography. Capture the Moment includes all of those winning images from 1942 – the year of the first photography award – through the 2008 winners.
Iconic images include Joe Rosenthal’s 1945 photograph of the raising of the American flag at Iwo Jima, and the RockyMountain News’s staff spot news photographs of the 1999 Columbine tragedy.
