The Denver Post won the Pulitzer for Feature Photography with a multimedia collection called Ian Fisher: American Soldier. Craig F. Walker, a photojournalist at the Denver Post, documented Ian Fisher through his journey in the army. From his senior year, Walker followed Fisher through graduation, basic training, his first assignment and one year in Iraq.
Walker took photographs, video footage and reported on Fisher’s day-to-day life. In the beginning, Fisher had problems adjusting to his life in the army, but he soon learned the consequences of slacking off.
Walker did an incredible job capturing even the smallest moments and tells the story in such an attention-grabbing way. I wouldn’t be able to do the collection justice by attempting to describe it; you need to see for yourself.
