ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

The Colorado History Museum hosts the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever shown in the United States. Capture the Moment THE PULITZER PRIZE PHOTOGRAPHS features nearly 130 winning photographs, color and black and white, representative of instantly recognizable historic moments from around the world, evoking a wide range of emotion in the visitor.

 


First seen in newspapers, many of these images proved influential in times of crises and stirred the nation to action. Representing a diverse scope of subject matter from brutality to heroism, Capture the Moment includes the winning images from 1942, the year of the first photography award, to the 2004 winners. The iconic images include the 2003 Hayman Fire and 2000 Columbine photographs by the Rocky Mountain News staff and the 1984 Memorial Day photograph by then Denver Post photographer Anthony Suau.

The massive 20-by-30 inch and 30-by-40 inch prints of the winning photographs are organized chronologically in the gallery. The large format pictures, presented without frames or mats, will stop visitors in their tracks and inspire emotional reflection on real events of the past. The photographs will be accompanied by the stories from the photographers themselves, telling their first-hand accounts of capturing the prize-winning images.
