The Pulitzer was â€œAwarded to Oded Balilty of The Associated Press for his powerful photograph of a lone Jewish woman defying Israeli security forces as they remove illegal settlers in the West Bank.â€
Update: Ynet discovered and interviewed the girl in this photo – she’s only 16! And interviewed her.
Oded Balilty was born in Jerusalem in 1979 and lives there today. He began his career as a photographer in the IDF and has been working for AP for some years. I recommend a google image search and a google search on Oded, who is clearly extraordinarily talented. Here’s another example of his work:
