Daniel Berehulak’s “They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals”

This past Monday, April 10, a Pulitzer Prize was awarded to a photographer for their DanielBerehulak_in_Cuba_03
breaking news photography. The winner this year is New York Times contributing photographer Daniel Berehulak for his hoto essay “They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals.”

Berehulak is an independent Australian photojournalist currently based in New Delhi who contributes to the New York Times. He has taken pictures in over 60 countries and mostly documents social issues. Last year he was named Photojournalist of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association.

On December 7, 2016 the New York Times published Berehulak’s photo essay “They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals.” Berehulak documented the deaths of 57 people in the Philippines in only 35 days. His photos are graphic yet harrowing accounts of the violence and murder raging through the Philippines as result of President Rodrigo Duterte’s brutal antidrug campaign. Below are some of the photos from his series, but I highly highly suggest you visit the New York Times interactive article here to truly experience Berehulak’s work.
