Westport is justly proud of our trio of world-famous photojournalists: Lynsey Addario, Tyler Hicks and Spencer Platt. All are Staples graduates from the 1980s.
Last week, both Lynsey (the recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and a 2009 Pulitzer Prize) and Tyler (who shared that 2009 Pulitzer for International Reporting) have had gripping photos in the New York Times, from Afghanistan and Haiti.
Now check out the February 21 edition of Time magazine. Lynsey has contributed an insightful photo-essay on medical evaluation units in Afghanistan.
In the 1950s and ’60s, Famous Photographers School made Westport proud. Five decades later, 3 home-grown photojournalists are doing the same.
