This week in Photography class my class and I visited the Newsuem. I visited many exhibits such as the Pulitzer Prize, FBI, and News History. The Pulitzer Prize was my favorite. These pictures were award winners, many of them telling a tragic story.  I learned about how hard times were in different countries during different times.  This also included the Berlin Wall and the Death Tower.  Going into these exhibits gave me a certain feeling of fear. This picture is of people that lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This was one of the most devastating natural disaster in the US, more than 1800 people lost their lives. This picture was taken by Smiley Pool. Taking this photo would make me rethink everything I have and I would become more grateful that this didn’t hit where I was. 

 This picture was taken of the “World Trade Center Attack”. This tragic event occurred on September 11, 2001. This was located in New York City, the buildings on fire are the Twin Towers. This picture is chilling and crazy to even think about how many people were in the buildings at that time and how close the photographer was, I would be scared and depressed that I couldn’t do anything to help. This picture was taken by Steve Ludlum. 

Lastly this was one of the exhibits, the News Room. This exhibit was for the most popular news the US. For each even they had a detailed description. It was really intriguing to see how time has changed has changed our culture and events. If I was a photographer of the Pulitzer Prize photo I don’t think I could ever go back to having a normal life. Everywhere I went I would see something I took and regret the fact that I was there and couldn’t help.
