E. Jason Wambsgans to show his Pulitzer-winning Chicago work in Portland and Eugene

A portrait of Tavon Tanner from Wambsgans’s Pulitzer-winning entry.

Chicago Tribune photojournalist E. Jason Wambsgans will speak at two University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication events and show his powerful project that won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography.

Wambsgans will discuss his work — which illuminated the epidemic of gun violence in Chicago by focusing on ten-year-old Tavon Tanner’s recovery from a shooting — in Portland on Jan. 30 and in Eugene on Feb. 1. Oregon Focus will co-host the Portland event.
