The Pulitzer Prize winners were announced on Monday to the great excitement of many in the journalism industry. None of the awards, however, carried the same amount of intrigue as the one claimed two years ago by Jahangir Razmi, an Iranian photographer who had actually won the award 27 years before. Josh Prager, formerly of the Wall Street Journal, was the reporter who first discovered Razmi's identity. Razmi and Prager tell their story.
