Pulitzer Prize Photographs

Exhibit on display February 22 – May 3, 2020
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, the second Pulitzer-themed display to visit The Durham Museum, features more than 80 large-format framed photographs, expanded so that visitors can explore every detail of the gripping images. Each will be accompanied by a label describing the dramatic story of how the photographer captured the moment. Interactive touchscreen kiosks explore more recent Pulitzer Prize winners through more than 1,000 images and 15 hours of video interviews with the photographers. Additionally, The Durham Museum will display Homecoming, the 1944 Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph by Earl “Buddy” Bunker of the Omaha World-Herald. The exhibit features the most comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever assembled. From iconic images like Joe Rosenthal’s 1945 photo of the American flag raising at Iwo Jima, to past and present moments of triumph and tragedy, these unforgettable photographs serve as the world’s eyes to history as it happened.
