Where did the cocoa in your chocolate bar come from? Who mined for the gold in your wedding band? What ocean did the fish on your plate come from?
These are all questions that Pulitzer Center photographers Dominic Bracco II, Nadia Shira Cohen, Peter DiCampo, Jason Motlagh and Larry Price sought to answer with their projects on various commodities from around the world.
In these videos, the photographers reflect on their reporting while discussing the challenges of telling the complex stories of the people behind the commodities.
The panel discussion titled The Story Behind the Story: Global Goods, Local Costs was a FotoWeek DC event sponsored by the George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs and the Pulitzer Center in association with the GW Program Board.
