Beyond the Finish Line

In 2010, I had the opportunity to watch the Cornell men’s basketball team trounce a Harvard team (that included Jeremy Lin) at Harvard while sitting on press row. I enjoyed speaking with the journalists seated with me – former New York Times sports reporter Pete Thamel and Josh Haner, the photographer accompanying him.

So it was exciting to see Haner’s name come up on this year’s list of Pulitzer Prize winners. It was even more special to realize that he won in the feature photography category for a series of pictures of a Boston Marathon survivor’s recovery. Several of the pictures depict Jeff Bauman in physical therapy. See the full set of pictures here (and don’t miss the great accompanying article).
