Lecture: four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Carol Guzy

Carol Guzy, a four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, is coming to RIT to lead a talk as part of the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences’ Charles Arnold Lecture Series. 

The open-to-all lecture is set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, in Carlson Auditorium (room 1125 in the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science). 

Guzy’s award-winning photojournalism career includes eight years at the Miami Herald before becoming a staff photographer at The Washington Post. She is currently a contract photographer with Zuma Press. 

Guzy specializes in long-term documentary human interest projects and spot news and feature stories. Her Pulitzer Prizes were won for her coverage of the devastating mudslide in Armero, Colombia (1986), a military intervention in Haiti (1995), refugees fleeing violence in Kosovo (2000) and the aftermath of a massive earthquake in Haiti (2011). 

In addition to her Pulitzer Prize credentials, Guzy has been named Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association three times and eight times by the White House News Photographers Association. As a Nikon Ambassador, Guzy is sponsored by Nikon for this lecture.
