The 2016 Pulitzer Prize Winner in Breaking News Photography

Pulitzer Prize photographyNew York Times Pulitzer prize photo

A 2016 Pulitzer Prize Winning photo. Take a close look at this image; check out the expression of the two men in the front of the boat, kids waving their clothes, two men trying to keep the boat for capsizing and especially the lighting and composition – it tells a story, truly a picture that speaks a thousand words. Congratulations to Sergey Ponomarev of the New York Times.

 (If you ever think your day sucks, trade places with them). Caption to the photo: Migrants arrive by a Turkish boat near the village of Skala, on the Greek island of Lesbos. The Turkish boat owner delivered some 150 people to the Greek coast and tried to escape back to Turkey; he was arrested in Turkish waters. The New York Times – November 16, 2015.
