I am so very thrilled to post that Barbara Davidson of the Los Angeles Times has won the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography for her “Caught In The Crossfire“. This incredible body of work is focused upon the innocent victims of gang violence. Davidson spent nearly two years in South Los Angeles, Compton and Watts and eventually became a member of the community gaining¬† access to intensely private moments. Barbara is the real deal – as a photographer and as a human being. In 2006 she was also awarded as part of a team, the Pulitzer for breaking news photography for the Dallas Morning News coverage of the aftermath of Katrina.
