Pulitzer Center – Year in Photos 2020

Posted by on Dec 20, 2020 in News, published work | No Comments


Thank you to the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting for including one of my images from Cambodia in their ‘2020: A Year in Photos’.

The Pulitzer Center have been long-term supporters of my work and I am deeply grateful for their continued faith and belief in my work. Without their support, I would not have been able to work on so many of the stories I have covered in the past decade and many of these issues may not have reached an international audience through mainstream media publications.

“Photojournalists play a powerful role in our world: they bring audiences directly into stories across the globe. This year, they documented stories of migrants fleeing the perils of climate change, of healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis, and of movements against racial injustice and police brutality. They have braved extraordinary circumstances to bear witness, and their photos are primary sources in the annals of history.

Explore some of the powerful photos Pulitzer Center-supported photojournalists have made this year, as selected by our staff. These are not single-issue stories for single-issue audiences. The people, places, and events depicted are full of nuance. In our search for solutions to the world’s systemic crises, we need the kind of journalism that engages with this complexity. But as newsrooms shrink and journalists come under ever more fire, the resources to make deep reporting possible are harder to come by.”
