This is the largest and most comprehensive exhibit in the United States of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs. These classics of photojournalism capture defining moments of the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. They bear stark witness to against war and brutality. They honor heroism, compassion and the strivings of ordinary people for better lives. Among the photos are indelible images that document the triumphs and tragedies of our era. And behind each is a second, moving tale: the story of how each photographer made the picture that won journalism's most prestigious prize.
