Pulizter Prize Photo Gallery Must See

Yesterday,I had the pleasure of attending the Pulitzer Prize photo gallery at the Daegu National Museum. “Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs” are breathtaking, taking you back through years of history starting from the 1940’s until today. I felt like I was home again, reliving history. It ends this Sunday, so go check it out!

“Bound to El Norte” (above), is part of photojournalist Don Bartletti’s Pulitzer prize-winning series “Enrique’s Journey.” Many of these teenagers come to America through a dangerous trek, searching for the mothers that left them out of necessity.

In 1973, the Lamaze method of natural childbirth was relatively new and unusual -- not only in Topeka, but in much of the United States.


Apprentice lineman J.D. Thompson is breathing life into the mouth of another apprentice lineman, Randall G. Champion, who hangs unconscious after receiving a jolt of high voltage. Rocco Morabito won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Spot Photography for this photograph – “The Kiss of Life.”

  1. It’s 2013, I still have that copy of the POW coming home from Vietnam. It hung on my bulletin board in my closet until I moved to college in 1979, I took it with me. I worn my POW bracelet until the day I got married in 1987. Lt Col. Donald Westbrook never came home.
