All the photographs on show have been recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, which was established in 1917 by Hungarian-born American publisher Joseph Pulitzer.
The $10,000 (£6000) cash awards are given out for achievements in newspaper and online journalism, literature and musical composition, with 21 categories in total.
The images in the exhibition take the form of original vintage prints of famous photographs, which include Robert H. Jackson’s image of the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald, the prime suspect in John F Kennedy’s assassination, who was shot in the chest by Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby.
Other highlights include the beautiful image of two aeroplanes narrowly missing one another in flight, Bill Crouch’s 1949 photograph, Near Collision at Air Show.
‘When contemplating one of these renowned photographs we recall the events of the past and become oblivious to our present moment’, says Daniel Blau Gallery.
‘We believe that the value of these photographs is found in their cultural and artistic significance as well as in the historical nature of the prints themselves.’
Eyewitness: Pulitzer Prize Winning Photographs is on show from 15 February – 29 March at Daniel Blau Gallery, 51 Hoxton Square, London N1
