Lucian Perkins came to the Post as an intern in 1979, earning a spot on the staff for a series he shot in his spare time on the first class of female "middies" at the U.S. Naval Academy. Since then, Perkins has won numerous awards, including the World Press Photo of the Year award in 1996 for a photograph of a boy peering out the window of a bus leaving Chechnya. In 1995 he and Post reporter Leon Dash were awarded a Pulitzer Prize for their four-year study of the effects of poverty on three generations of a Washington, D.C., family. He shared a second Pulitzer Prize in 2000 with Post photographers Carol Guzy and Michael Williamson for coverage of Kosovo. He was also named Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 1994 by the National Press Photographers Association for a portfolio that included his coverage of Russia, a subject he became fascinated with in the late 1980s. In 1995, Perkins founded InterFoto, an international photojournalism conference in Moscow. He lives with his wife, Sarah, in Washington, D.C.
