Pulitzer Photographer David Leeson Speaks

By Beacon Staff

Pulitzer Prize winning photographer David Leeson is speaking tonight, Sept. 21, at the University of Montana. Unfortunately, I am unable to go. For those of you who are not familiar with Leeson’s work, he was a staffer at the Dallas Morning News where he won the Pulitzer for his coverage of Iraq. He is a great video journalist as well as still photographer. He works in fine art photography as well as photojournalism. He is incredibly smart. His lecture is at the University Center Theater at 7 p.m. If, like me, you are unable to attend, check out this short video I am borrowing from his Web site. It is the last speech he made as a Morning News photographer during a presentation for the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers’ Association. It is truly inspirational.

Check out his Web site, his images and his vision.
