The most comprehensive exhibition of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever assembled arrives in Philadelphia after drawing millions of visitors on its worldwide tour. Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs illuminates the enduring power of the still image, the importance of First Amendment freedoms, and the key role of the press in documenting the stories of our time. Typically published on the front pages of American newspapers, these indelible images have influenced our thinking, inspired civic action, and traced the triumphs and tragedies of “We the People.”
Capture the Moment includes every winner since the Pulitzer board began awarding the photography prize in 1942.
