Abstract

This paper will briefly discuss the origins of photography, photojournalism, Joseph Pulitzer and his involvement with the arts. Then we will explore why it is important to study visuals, visual rhetoric, and what “poignant presence” is as related to three recent Pulitzer Prize winning photographs, all from the Breaking News Category and featuring combat in war.
