Javier manzano pulitzer 2013 honor et fier
Life and career
Manzano was born in Mexico but moved to the United States with his family when he was 18 years old. He worked as a journalist and photographer for advertising agencies and the Rocky Mountain News until the newspaper closed its doors in 2009, after which he began working as a freelance photographer for the Associated Press, Agence France-Presse, Foreign Policy and other news outlets.
Manzano's Pulitzer Prize–winning photograph was taken in October 2012 at the Karm-al Jabal district of Aleppo, Syria. It shows two Free Syrian Army soldiers guarding a sniper's nest as light streams through bullet holes in the wall behind them. Manzano is the first freelance photographer to be awarded the prize in 17 years, when Charles Porter IV and Stephanie Welsh won in 1996.
