Los Angeles Times staff photographer Barbara Davidson was awarded a Pulitzer Prize today in the feature-photography category for her work documenting the victims and the families of gang-related crimes. You may remember that these same images were included in last year's
"Pictures of the Year International
" show at the Space. Big congratulations to Barbara!
Barbara was featured in the digital feature for the show and had this to say about her work covering the gang violence for the Times:
"There are a lot of gang stories that we cover. We cover the shooting, we go to funerals and then we stop. We don't show really what happens to these people and how their lives are completely altered. I wanted to follow those stories through.
