Format: Paperback
I bought this at the Durham Museum in Omaha Nebraska during the pulitzer photography exhibit. The book is oversized paperback. Pages are glossy. Many of these photographs you have probably seen before... Many you may not have. Each photograph is accompanied by a short story of the photo or how the photo was shoot.

Each of the photos capture our world from many different angles. Some heartbreaking, some joyful.

Even if you know nothing about photography, this will be a great addition to your library.

I bought this for my daughter who has become interested in photography. This book is so visually stimulating you won't be able to put it down. The book is also a great history lesson and we have spent a lot of time talking about events that she may not learn in school.

Format: Paperback
Capture the Moment provides an array of photojournalistic images, each having won the Pulitzer Prize, and covers events from 1942 to 2010. The Pulitzer Prize is not directly discussed in this book, but the photos are of outstanding quality and they reflect the prestige of the award. The images in this book also contain an assortment of emotions and events, ranging from joyous, to graphic and disturbing. The photographs are an interesting way to retrace history. Whether they depict the heroic, the elite, or the impoverished, the stories and their accompanying photos cover social events from each time period, a few of which include: wars, tragedy in Africa, and riots.

Each image is powerful on their own, but they are further enhanced with texts written by each photographer. These photographers' insights provide readers a glimpse into the events as they were occurring, through the arts of both photography and writing. While reading, the viewer gets an in depth look into what the photographers were feeling, their opinion, their overall experience, as well as a historic context, all of which is different for each incident. Readers can draw connections between the writings and the images, which gives them multiple viewpoints of every event. This allows a more thorough understanding of the information, and enhances the experience of the viewer.

One of the photographers, William C. Beall, stated in his photograph, Faith and Confidence, "I suddenly saw the picture, turned and clicked." This same eagerness and precision resounds in each of the photographers' stories in this book, all of whom took risks and did what it took to preserve these important historic moments. Capture the Moment is a unique book that celebrates photojournalism, provides detailed information about events through the photographers' eyewitness accounts, and overall strives to help people see and understand history.

This book is for any photographer who wants to see what it is truly like to "Capture the Moment." This books not only contains stunning photojournalism pictures, but also the stories that go with each. Together, they provide a real sense of the stories behind the photos.

No doubt everyone has seen at least one of these pictures in their lifetime. The raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima, the naked girl fleeing her napalmed village during the Vietnam War, or Babe Ruth's final bow.

Whether you are a photographer who wants to be able to take pictures like these, or just an admirer of such hard hitting photography, you WILL enjoy this book.
