Tearsheet of The Day | 17 June 2012
Craig F. Walker’s 2012 Pulitzer prize in Feature Photography winning series ‘Welcome Home – The Story of Scott Ostrom’ featured today in The Sunday Times Magazine’s Spectrum section.
Text on the spread: The Aftermath. Since he was discharged from the US Marines five years ago, suffering severe post-traumatic stress disorder, Brian Scott Ostrom has been unable to hold down a job or maintain healthy relationships at home in Boulder, Colorado. These pictures are part of a Pulitzer prize-winning study by the photographer Craig F. Walker. Ostrom is seen arguing with his girlfriend (bottom centre right) and alone afterwards (bottom centre left and top right). He has attempted suicide – below he examines the scars.
The project in its entirety can be viewed on the Denver Post’s website here.
You can also see a video of Walker speaking about the work right after the Pulitzer prize was announced.
