Pulitzer Prize Photographs
July 23, 2018 – March 3, 2019
“If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture.” – Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographer Eddie Adams
About the Exhibition
Photographers record the defining moments of our world and our time, capturing history through timeless images of fleeting moments. With the click of a button, vivid imagery documents the pain of poverty, the ecstasy of victory and the triumph of redemption.
This exhibition features the most comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever assembled, including photographs from every Pulitzer Prize-winning entry since 1942, when the award was first presented.
Interactive touch screens in the gallery display more than 1,000 images and 15 hours of video and audio compiled from interviews with the prize-winning photographers.
This exhibition is from the Newseum in Washington D.C. The BYU Museum of Art is the first venue outside the Newseum to host this exhibition.
Warning: Some material in this exhibition, including photographic depictions of actual violence, may be too intense for some visitors. Parents are encouraged to preview the exhibition before attending with children.
