Carolyn Cole

Carolyn Cole has covered national and international news for The Times since 1994. Her work on the civil crisis in Liberia won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography.

Cole is a two-time winner of the Robert Capa Gold Medal for war photography from the Overseas Press Club of America – for her work in Iraq and Liberia (2003) and her photographs of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem (2002). She has also earned four World Press Photo awards. In 2010, Cole covered the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.

Cole was a finalist in the 2011 Pulitzer Prizes’ news photography category for her memorable images from last year’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill. She spent 85 days in the gulf photographing one of the worst environmental disasters in history – day-to-day dogged visual reporting at its finest. This year marks the sixth time Cole has been a Pulitzer finalist, a record for a Times staffer.
