Info: Our guest is Carol Guzy, photographer for The Washington Post. Along with two Post colleagues Nikki Kahn and Ricky Carioti, she has just won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography. They won for a series of photographs of the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. This is Carol Guzy’s fourth Pulitzer Prize, the most ever won by a journalist. In this interview, Guzy shows photos from the Haiti earthquake. She also shows and discusses earlier photo projects including the fall of the Berlin Wall; the 1986 mudslide in Colombia; Kosovo and Albania in 1999; 9/11 in New York; and her photo story series of animals left behind after Katrina.
