The Robert Capa Gold Medal Award 2007

John Moore withstood the deadly chaos of a suicide bombing attack that killed Benazir Bhutto to record the last moments of the politician’s life. During the attack and the ensuing pandemonium, Moore courageously photographed the violence and shattered hopes of those looking toward the restoration of democracy in Pakistan. In the spirit of Robert Capa, Moore captured the frenzied moments of the assassination and its deadly aftermath to bear witness to a significant historical moment.
