Carolyn Cole's life is filled with images. It is also packed full of international recognition for her work. With a Pulitzer Prize, two Robert Capa Gold Medals, four World Press Photo Awards, and three National Press Photographers Association Photojournalist of the Year awards, it is clear that both Cole's peers and world-wide audience find her photographs to be especially powerful for conveying the essence of a particular moment in time and history.


In 2003, Cole went to Liberia, as rebels surrounded that country's capital, Monrovia. It was there that she would earn the 2004 Pulitzer Prize, ". . . for her cohesive, behind-the-scenes look at the effects of civil war in Liberia, with special attention to innocent citizens caught in the conflict."


In The Moment, which took place in April of 2008,  featured images chosen by the Los Angeles Times photojournalist as primary examples of her intent to provide intimate stories of world events. Many of the exhibition's twenty-eight photographs focus on children and women, victims of war, famine, and natural disasters, from Iraq to Louisiana. Much more than a snapshot in time, each photograph is a poignant testimony to our collective humanity and inhumanity. They are vivid reminders of the global village in which we live.


In The Moment was developed and produced by Americas' Arts, in cooperation with The Majestic Theater.
