You are cordially invited to attend a seminar with Michel du Cille. Born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1956, he began his career in photojournalism while in high school working for The Gainesville (GA) Times. Following internships in Louisville and Miami, he joined the photography staff of The Miami Herald in 1981. The Washington Post hired him in 1988 as picture editor. He became an associate editor there in 2005 working primarily as a project photojournalist and then, in 2007, as Assistant Manager for Photography. He has won two Pulitzer Prizes for his photography, in 1986 and 1988. He received a third Pulitzer in 2008 for a piece that he wrote with other Washington Post journalists on the mistreatment of wounded war veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. This exposé produced a national outcry and led to major reforms.
