Boston Bombing Survivor
Jeff Bauman, 27, was waiting to cheer his girlfriend at the Boston Marathon finish line when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded, shredding his legs and puncturing both eardrums. A photo of an ashen-faced Bauman taken moments after the attack appeared on front pages around the world.
New York Times photographer John Haner spent 21 days over three months documenting Bauman's arduous recovery and his adaptation to prosthetic legs. The first day, Bauman's mother kicked Haner out, fearing the photographer would be a distraction. Undaunted, Haner returned the next day to photograph Bauman's three-hour physical therapy session. Bauman finished his last 15 repetitions with a hand weight and slumped back, exhausted. Standing on a chair, Haner captured this image.
Haner wants his photos of Bauman to remind people of the struggle ahead for the survivors of the bombing, which killed three people and wounded more than 260. Bauman "was a sporting event, and his life changed in the blink of an eye," said Haner.

Kenya Mall Massacre
New York Times photographer Tyler Hicks was running errands in Nairobi, Kenya, when he got a tip about trouble at a nearby mall. He saw crowds fleeing the mall, "many of them shot, blood streaming from faces."
Islamic militants armed with AK-47 assault rifles stalking the mall, shooting men, woman and children. Inside, Hicks spotted a woman with two young children lying on the floor. "They were petrified, completely still. All around them were bodies -- a man next ot an ATM machine, a woman still holding a shopping bag. I took the picture and was thrown out." At most 67 people were killed in the four-day siege of terror.
After Hicks won the Pulitzer Prize, the woman emailed him. She revealed how she kept her 2-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter still during the attack. "She was humming and singing that mall music to calm the children. They lay there for five hours just hiding."
