Admired Chicago photographer John H. White chronicles the humanity of history
A John White photograph can make time stand still for a moment, but its impact can last a lifetime. “People need to understand who we are, where we are. We’re here for this time, this short time,” he said. “We leave. What we leave is forever.” White has not only chronicled history, he’s made it. In 1982, while at the Chicago Sun-Times, White won the Pulitzer Prize for photojournalism. It was the first Pulitzer ever awarded for a collection of photographs.
