  • 'The legacy of any photographer is her or his ability to capture the moment, to record history. For me it is about showing the struggle and survival of the individual.' (Photgrapher Anja Niedringhaus)

    'This is a profession of the brave and the passionate, those committed to the mission of bringing to the world information that is fair, accurate and important. Anja Niedringhaus met that definition in every way.' (AP President Gary Pruitt).

Transcript

  • 1. “Anja Niedringhaus began working as a freelance photographer at age 17 while still in high school. In 1990, she began working full- time as a photojournalist when she joined the European Pressphoto Agency in Frankfurt, Germany. As EPA’s Chief Photographer she spent the first ten years of her career covering the wars in the former Yugoslavia. In November 2002, Niedringhaus moved to the Associated Press as a traveling photographer. She was the only woman on a team of 11 AP photographers awarded the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography. Today, Niedringhaus is regularly on the road covering major events for the AP when not working from her base in Switzerland”. – The Associated Press
