On the heels of winning the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography and the Overseas Press Club’s Robert Capa Gold Medal for his photos of an attack on a Nairobi shopping mall, New York Times photographer Tyler Hicks was interviewed by Terry Gross on the WHYY/NPR program Fresh Air yesterday. I’ve been a long-time fan of Terry Gross’s interviews; they’re usually well-informed and wide-ranging and address hard questions on the subject at hand.
It’s rare for a photographer to appear on the program, but there have been some from different genres over the past years of the show. Here are a few that I’ve found searching the Fresh Air archive, though not all are available to listen online: Horst Faas, Roy DeCarava, Robert Freeman, Ashley Gilbertson, Joel Meyerowitz, David and Peter Turnley (audio not available), Randy Olson, William Gottlieb, Doug Niven (audio not available), Fazal Sheikh (audio not available), David Douglas Duncan (audio not available), Marion Ettlinger, and James Nachtwey (audio not available)
You can listen to the interview, which is just over 40 minutes, in the above embedded player or on the Fresh Air website.
