The Arab Spring's Best Photos

Photojournalists John Moore and Peter Madiarmid -- along with Chris Hondros, who was killed last year while reporting in Libya -- were announced as finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography on Monday. In naming the three Getty photographers as finalists, the Committee cited "their brave coverage of revolutionary protests known as the Arab Spring, capturing the chaos and exuberance as ordinary people glimpsed new possibilities." Here are some of their most iconic shots.


Photojournalists, including New York Times staff photographer Tyler Hicks, photograph Libyan rebels on March 10, 2011 in Ras Lanuf, Libya.
