Pulitzer For Photography

The first Pulitzer Prize for photography was awarded to Milton Brooks for his photograph of a strike at Ford Motor Co. in 1943. In 1968, the award was split into two categories: the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography and the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography. This year's winners were announced yesterday.

The respective recipients were Damon Winter of The New York Times,for his series on the Obama campaign, and Patrick Farrell of The Miami Herald, for his coverage of the destruction in Haiti caused by Hurricane Ike. Take a look at some of Winter's photos below.
