One 2007 Pulitzer

April 19th, 2007

Renee C Byer, who at one time worked at the Seattle P-I, won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography for her work in “A Mother’s Journey” which is about the struggles a single mother faces in her son’s final year with cancer.

The Sacramento Bee, where Byer now works, has a distribution agreement with Zuma Press where you can find the images and the story’s text.

It is a powerful package and I recommend taking the time to read the text. For the aspiring photographer I think this shows two things; Cindy’s words at the end reveal something about the relationship between journalist and subject. Also, like they told me in college, meaningful stories are in our backyard. We just need to open our eyes and see.
