David Turnley, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Photography, is universally recognized as one of the finest image-makers of our time.  Throughout his career, David has won many of photography’s top honors including the prestigious Robert Capa award, two World Press Pictures of the Year, and five Overseas Press Club Awards for Best Photo-Reporting. David has also been finalist for the Pulitzer four times and has published eight photographic monographs of his work from around the globe.  David has documented history by photographing the the evolutioh of South Africa over the last twenty-five years. His book MANDELA: IN TIMES OF STRUGGLE AND TRIUMPH bares witness to a pivotal moment in the country’s history and the life of the heroic leader Nelson Mandela since his release from prison in 1991.   David has continued to push his professional boundaries, adding documentary filmmaking and commercial directing to his diverse repertoire. His film “La Tropical” is considered highly provocative and perhaps the most sensual film to have been shot in Cuba. David is currently directing a film set in a coal mining town called Shenandoah, PA.   David graduated from University of Michigan with a degree in French Literature, and was awarded the Nieman Fellowship at Harvard. He has an honorary Doctorate from the New School in New York.
