The making of a Pulitzer

Very interesting audio slideshow featuring Reuters shooter Adrees Latif, who recently won the Pulitzer Breaking News Photography prize for a picture of Japanese videographer Kenji Nagai fatally shot by a Burmese soldier during street protests in Yangon. He talks about what it was like working covertly in a very dangerous situation. You can view it here.

Congratulations to Adrees, who accepted the award with grace and humility. As he said, it is bittersweet winning such a prestigious award for an image of a fallen colleague.
