"Ira Glass … has said that “the power of anecdote is so great that it has a momentum in and of itself.” He contends, “no matter how boring the facts are,” with a well-told story, “you feel inherently as if you are on a train that has a destination.”"

New York Times photojournalist Tyler Hicks spoke to Fresh Air about his Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs of the terrorist siege at a Nairobi mall in September 2013. In today’s interview Hicks tells Terry Gross about taking this photo:

"It’s a very exposed vantage point so I didn’t spend a lot of time there. But I looked down and saw this incredible scene of a young woman with two children hiding on the floor of a café. You could see shell casings all around them from bullets and they were just petrified, they were completely still and … to me, that photograph really sums up what happened there. Outside of the frame, all around them and on the floor of this mall were bodies, a man next to an ATM machine, a woman still holding a shopping bag who had been killed, and they somehow managed to avoid that."

The webpage includes more of his prize-winning photos. Interview extras can be found on Soundcloud.
