If you’re interested in photography it’s likely you know this photograph. What you may not know is the story of the people behind it; Edward Crawford, who’s throwing the tear gas canister and Robert Cohen, the photographer. The story is told in a recent episode of the excellent Criminal Podcast. If you enjoy good audio documentary I’d recommend Criminal.
This image is part of a series of photographs from the Ferguson riots shot for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch which won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography.
Congratulations to Robert Cohen and his colleagues.
