Moments : The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographs: A Visual Chronicle of Our Time (Reissue) (Paperback)
About this item
The bestselling, complete collection of more than 600 Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs, from the first awards in 1942 through the 2015 honors.
Organized by year, the photographs in this stunning and emotional work create a poignant visual chronicle of our times. The images here, many of which are seared into our collective consciousness, include raising the flag at Iwo Jima, a young Vietnamese girl fleeing her village, her body burned by napalm, and the collapse of the World Trade towers. Others show less-well-known, but equally as powerful scenes from children in war-torn Liberia washing themselves in a bucket of water to a high-diver at the Barcelona Olympics. Each photograph is narrated with an essay by Hal Buell, the former head of picture services at Associated Press. An illustrated timeline of each year places the photographs in historical context.
This bestselling, complete collection of more than 600 poignant, heart-wrenching Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs, from the first in 1942 through 2015, compose a visual chronicle of our time.
