At a single moment, a photojournalist has the power to convey the depth and emotion of a complex story. Skill, timing, fearlessness, and often, an ability to establish bonds with people who offer exclusive access to a significant occasion come together to capture history, humanity and meaning in one image. The Faces of Humanity and Mankind exhibition features a selection of photographs from national award-winning photojournalist Richard (Rick) E. Kozak’s long career documenting stories from around the world.
For more than 30 years Kozak covered the United States and the world as a photojournalist. He has photographed politics, sports, national events, wars in Africa, Central America, Afghanistan, and the Iraq War (where he was wounded in 2005 while on Operation Steel Curtain on the Syrian border with the US Marines & Special Forces). He worked for major news outlets such as The Washington Times, Insight Magazine, Army Times, Time Magazine, US News & World Report, Smithsonian Magazine, and Science Magazine.
