Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer to present Global Awareness Lecture Feb. 22

The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University will host Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Ruth Fremson Wednesday, Feb. 22, at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium for a Global Awareness Lecture.

Fremson, a photographer for The New York Times, will discuss “Global Hotspots—Images and Ideas.”

Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Fremson joined The New York Times in 2000 as a staff photographer, where she covered the John McCain and Al Gore presidential campaigns and, beginning in April 2002, the conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Israel.

A three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Fremson participated in the team of photographers whose images of the World Trade Center disaster on Sept. 11, 2001, won the prize for “Breaking News Photography.”

Before joining The New York Times, Fremson worked as an Associated Press staff photographer covering such events as the Atlanta Olympics, the Republican and Democratic conventions and the funeral of Princess Diana.

She has received honors from the National Press Photographers Association, the New York Press Photographers Association and the White House News Photographers' Association.

Born in Long Island, N.Y., Fremson received a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and photography from Syracuse University and conducted graduate work in photojournalism at Ohio University.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on Kennedy Center events, visit kennedy.byu.edu.
