Pulitzer Prize Photojournalist Jim MacMillan
The Hyde Collection is honored to host Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Jim MacMillan. At 3pm in the Helen Froehlich Auditorium, MacMillan presents Walking Through Ground Zero: Images From the First 24 Hours. He will discuss how he visually captured the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center. His compelling image, First Light, 09/12/01, is included in the New York, New York! The 20th Century exhibition..
Mr. MacMillan is presently Journalist in Residence at the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility at Swarthmore College. In this role, he advises and produces War News Radio, teaches a new course in Peace Journalism, and advises other student groups on new media and independent journalism.
This lecture is part of a week-long tribute (September 10 through September 18, 2011) entitled Honoring Those Who Serve. The museum is offering free admission to the exhibition to any professional first-responder and volunteer (such as police offers, firefighters, ambulance corps., etc.) On Sunday, September 11, we are opening our doors to our visitors with free admission to both the exhibition and Mr. MacMillan's presentation.
