CPIJ Photo Night at the P&P: Featuring April Saul

saul
April Saul has been a photojournalist at The Philadelphia Inquirer for more than 30 years. In that time, she has juggled daily newspaper assignments, longterm documentary projects and single parenting, and has received numerous honors including a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award.

Last year, Saul was awarded an Alicia Patterson Foundation Journalism Fellowship and an NPPA Short Grant to spend a year pursuing her documentary project, “Camden, NJ: A Spirit Invincible.”

Or as she puts it, “I won a year of my life.” While her work in Camden encompasses the city’s problems — homelessness, drug addiction, violence, abandoned buildings — “it also reflects the indomitable spirit of its residents, who are trying to live normal lives against difficult odds.”

Please join us at the Pen and Pencil Club on Wednesday, October 22nd at 8 p.m.

Saul will share work in progress from her Camden project.
