The St. Louis Post-Dispatch photo staff is the winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography.

The journalism awards were announced Monday. The Post-Dispatch was honored for its photo coverage of protests that followed the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black, by a white Ferguson police officer in August.

For over two decades photojournalist Carol Guzy has traveled the world, capturing breathtaking images of sorrow and joy, destruction and rebirth.
