Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographers Were Honored For Some Incredible Images

The 2014 Pulitzer Prize winners for Breaking News Photography and Feature Photography were announced on Monday.

Both awards were captured by photographers from the New York Times.

Tyler Hicks, a staff photographer for the New York Times, received the award in breaking news photography for his pictures documenting the terrorist attack at Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya.

Josh Haner won for feature photography for his essay, "Beyond the Finish Line," on one victim's recovery after the Boston Marathon bombings.

“It’s a huge honor to be recognized in this way, and it’s a reminder to me that these stories, however far away and however remote, are being noticed and that the risks that photographers all over the world take in going to dangerous places are being acknowledged and rewarded," Hicks said.

"It’s a symbol of what we do at the newspaper as a whole — the best of foreign reporting and the best of our enterprise,” NY Times' assistant managing editor for photography Michele McNally added.
