We are working on a very special online event in May, featuring three award-winning, world & life-changing photographers. While their paths in photography have all been different, they are all connected and share a passion that is near and dear to many of our hearts: Animal Rescue and Conservation. We are in the midst of planning the details for this one-of-a-mind gathering of creative minds, but can share a few details with you. There will be storytelling. We’ll share in laughter, tears, fun and serious moments. Through it all, we’ll explore images, how they came to be, and how this trio came together with Looking Glass on a common mission. More details to follow over the coming weeks. And right now, we’d like to introduce you to these remarkable humans. Below, discover Carol Guzy. She had Jen and (Jon) feeling such strong emotion as she shared some of her story and images with us on a Zoom meeting.

AND NOW WE'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE ... CAROL!
Photojournalist Carol Guzy started her career with two internships at the Miami Herald that led to a position as a staff photographer at the paper. In 1988 she joined the staff of The Washington Post, and in 1990 became the first woman to receive the Newspaper Photographer of the Year Award from the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).
Her many honors include three NPPA Photographer of the Year awards and eight from the White House News Photographers Association. She is a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner, taking the award for feature photography (for her work in Kosovo), breaking news (for the 2010 Haitian earthquake) and twice for spot news photography (for the military intervention in Haiti and the Armero, Colombia, tragedy). She is the only journalist to win the Pulitzer four times. In 2018 she was awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal, which honors photography requiring exceptional courage and enterprise, for her efforts documenting the effect of the war on ISIS on the civilians of Mosul, Iraq.
Carol has always been a believer in long-form, documentary photojournalism. "it's really hard to do in this world of quick-hit journalism," she says, "but I think it makes a difference, and I'll never change how I feel about that. If you don't spend time with people you're not going to get the genuine moments in visual storytelling that you need to be as accurate as possible. People deserve us to spend time and do it right."
Carol is currently a contract photographer with Zuma Press. Her work has been published by National Geographic, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, ESPN and many others. She has given countless presentations and taught photojournalism at numerous workshops.
