As staff photographer at The Washington Post for more than 20 years, Lucian received his first Pulitzer Prize for collaboration with Post reporter Leon Dash on their four-year study of the effects of poverty on three generations of a Washington, D.C., family through the eyes of the matriarch. His second was for coverage of the Kosovo conflict. Additional awards include “Newspaper Photographer of the Year” by the National Press Photographers Association and “World Press Photo of the Year.” Lucian’s recent book, Hard Art, DC, captures the beginning of the Washington, D.C., punk-music scene in 1979 while revealing its reverberating impact today.
