May 7, 2020. Pulitzer Prize winner and former New York Times senior photographer Stephen Crowley will discuss how news photos can convey humanity, irony, and humor as well as news in an online presentation with National Press Club's Photography Team and Washington Photography Roundtable.
The joint virtual meeting takes place at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, via the video conferencing service Zoom. Registration is required by Monday, May 11, to receive log-in instructions. The event is free.
Crowley is a winner of the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography along with four other New York Times photographers for their coverage of the war in Afghanistan. That same year the White House News Photographers' Association recognized Crowley as its Photographer of the Year for his work in Afghanistan and a photo essay on a day in the life of President Bush. In 2001, he was part of a team at the New York Times that won the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting on race in America.
In his talk with the Club's Photography Team and Photography Roundtable, Crowley will provide insights from his career and offer examples of infusing humanity, irony, and humor in his personal work, with images of the country's character as hinted by physical structures, shifting light patterns, and happenstance. After his talk, Crowley will take questions from participants for 15 minutes.
