Four-time Pulitzer winner Carol Guzy grew up in Bethlehem and began her career as an intern at the Miami Herald. She was hired as a staff photographer at the Herald before moving on to the Washington Post. Named “Newspaper Photographer of the Year” three times by the National Press Photographers Association and eight times by the White House News Photographer Association, she is currently a freelance photojournalist specializing in long-term documentary projects. Guzy will take us through a retrospective journey of photojournalism with reflections on the vital role of empathy in visual storytelling -- shining the light on dark corners as well as the poetry of everyday lives -- an exploration of the emotional impact of stories on humanity and our own hearts.

Carol Guzy was born in Bethlehem and lived there until 1978 when she completed her studies at Northampton County Area Community College, graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Registered Nursing. A change of heart led her to the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida to study photography, and she graduated in 1980 with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Photography.

While at the Art Institute, Carol interned at The Miami Herald, and upon graduation was hired as a staff photographer. She spent eight years at the newspaper before moving to Washington, D.C., where she became a staff photographer at The Washington Post through 2014. She is currently an independent photographer.

Carol is the only journalist to receive four Pulitzer Prizes. She received her first in 1986 (Spot News Photography) for her pictures of the devastating mudslide in Armero, Colombia. Carol was recognized in 1995 (Spot News Photography) for her coverage of the military intervention in Haiti, and in 2000 she received a Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for her work in Kosovo. She won her fourth Pulitzer, for Breaking News Photography, in 2011 for coverage of the Haitian earthquake in 2010.

Carol has been named Photographer of the Year for the National Press Photographers Association three times and eight times for the White House News Photographers Association, and she has earned many other prestigious awards in her chosen profession of photojournalism. She specializes in long-term documentary human interest projects, spot news and feature stories, both domestic and international, as well as local daily assignments and is currently editing for book projects.
