Reading: "Moments: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographs" (Hal BUELL, 4th Ed. 2007)

I picked up a bargain today at the Co-Op bookshop!  They’re having a sale, and this hardcover, coffee-table sized photo book was marked down to AU$9.10.  “Moments” provides a pictorial history of the Pulitzer Prize from 1942 to 2007, featuring every photo that has won the Pulitzer Prize, the most prestigious of photographic journalism awards.

There are 242 photographs in the book, which are all individually arresting, and collectively document some of the most significant events of the last 65 years.  There are explanations of each news story depicted in the images, and technical capture details of many of the prize-winning images are also included – camera, film type, shutter speed, aperture, and lens.

Should keep me out of trouble for a few days hours… 🙂
