Cheryl Diaz Meyer Pulitzer-Prize winning photojournalist Cheryl Diaz Meyer is best known for her daring coverage of the Iraq War and her insightful documentation of women facing adversity across the globe.  The “eloquent photographs depicting both the violence and poignancy of the war with Iraq” garnered her and colleague David Leeson the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography. Her pictures were also awarded the Visa D’Or in 2003 at the Visa Pour L’Image photo festival in France. Now based in Washington, D.C., Diaz Meyer was born and raised in the Philippines and moved with her family to the United States in 1981.

Barry Finn, son of NYPPA Honorary Life Member and Past President William V. Finn has past away at the age of 80

It is with regret that we announce the death of Barry Finn, son of NYPPA Honorary Life Member and Past President William V. Finn, which occurred on October 7, 2016. He was 80. Finn was our guest this summer at the fireboat ride commemorating his father's 1958 line-of-duty death while photographing for the Journal-American, and accepted his father's posthumous award on behalf of the family. The Finns wish to again convey to our organization how grateful they are for our remembrance of their patriarch. We extend to them our deepest sympathy, and thank them for their generous support of the NYPPA.
