BREAKING NEWS PHOTOGRAPHY: PATRICK FARRELL, THE MIAMI HERALD
The Pulitzer for “breaking news photography” has been awarded to Patrick Farrell for his coverage of the turmoil after hurricane Ike in Haiti, on assignment for The Miami Herald. Check out some selects below or more here.
“In 2008, the Herald repeatedly sent Farrell to Haiti, which bore the brunt of the year’s Atlantic Hurricane Season. He was there the night Hurricane Ike – the fourth storm to hit Haiti in a month – reflooded the overwhelmed country, swallowing homes and lives. In all, more than 800 Haitians died and more than 1 million were left homeless by the unrelenting series of storms.”
