Getty Images photojournalist Daniel Berehulak has been recognised for his work documenting the ebola epidemic in West Africa during the 99th annual Pulitzer Prize in journalism, letters, drama and music.

Berehulak spent over 14 weeks in rural and urban areas of West Africa covering the Ebola epidemic for The New York Times. His photography captured heartbreaking images of the work carried out by aid workers and local communities, as well as Ebola survivors and their families.

Getty Images co-founder and CEO Jonathan Klein said: “We are delighted and enormously proud that Getty Images photographer Daniel Berehulak has been awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his extraordinary coverage of the human toll, courage and hope of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.”

The New York Times international picture editor David Furst told News Corp that: “For nearly four months Daniel chronicled the full, excruciating arc of Ebola as it tore across West Africa. His stark and irrepressible images, at once brutal and compassionate, are by far the most comprehensive of the epidemic, drawing global attention to a story no other photographer covered as extensively.”

Berehulak’s Ebola portfolio can be viewed here.
