Context please? Posting random award winning photos is kind of lazy, don't you think? These didn't win because they were lovely photographs, it was the story behind them that made them award winners.

Lame post, but thanks for the research project!

Seriously journalism is not just going to find a few pictures, caption them, or get off your backside and link them to an actual context. What could've been a really decent and interesting article has turned into just a bunch of pictures to years.

Go back out, and finish this article, then be proud to call yourself the creator of a good article.

Shame there is no mention of what we are looking at or any kind of context.... Why not ?! I see these pictures and I want to know more.

I think the idea here is to remember why these photos were taken. These photos were taken during times of great emotion, and these photos were chosen as a prime example of that emotion to the viewer.

tl;dr - Stop being ignorant.

Could have at least cited the photographers...

These are some amazing photos, but the lack of context is difficult... It also seems that some may be incorrect, as they differ from the descriptions provided at the Pulitzer website (http://www.pulitzer.org/bycat/Feature-Photography)

It bothers me to the core that Kevin Carter didn't just pick her up and save her.

Without the explanation of the circumstances under which these photos were taken, explanation of what is going on and why, who is involved and why, mentioning the photographer, this whole collection of photos is just useless.

Words cant explain everything. Yes it would have been more interesting with context but if you take a closer look you will find that the context is the photo itself.
