Pulitzer Center Update November 4, 2011

Pulitzer Center Events During FotoWeek DC

Media: Author:

Since our start, the Pulitzer Center has been committed to funding and promoting important photojournalism that challenges our definition of crises and explores avenues beyond traditional reporting to raise awareness of critical global issues.<br>
This week, we're thrilled to announce a number of events we've lined up as part of FotoWeek DC, featuring some of the best photographers we've worked with recently. These photographers have demonstrated a unique approach to covering crises with exceptional vision that turns "public interest" journalism into journalism that the public is interested in!<br>
The events will feature the work of photojournalists Marcus Bleasdale, Dominic Bracco II, Sean Gallagher, Andre Lambertson, Richard Mosse, David Rochkind, Stephanie Sinclair, and James Whitlow Delano. You'll have a chance to connect directly with many of these journalists throughout the week so we hope you'll join us for this exciting celebration of these photographers' work.<br>
<strong>Friday, November 4th: Opening Night Receptions for Beyond Witness FotoWeek Exhibit</strong><br>
Please join us for the opening night celebrations of our exhibit featured at FotoWeek Central.<br>
The festivities begin at 5 p.m. at FotoWeek Central with the exclusive preview opening of this year's exhibitions.
