Revolution Revisited: A photoj locates his subjects from 1987

Revolution Revisited is a project by 1987 Pulitzer Prize winner photographer Kim Komenich, now a professor at San Jose State University.  In 2011, Komenich began locating and reconnecting with the subjects from his spot news winning essay from the People’s Power Revolution which overthrew Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos and put Corazon Aquino in power.

The website features then and now image pairs, a longer essay about the revolution, interviews with the photographer, video stories and a database of over 500 outtakes from his coverage, which Komenich hopes will help to locate more subjects from his coverage in the mid-1980s.

The site was produced by a class of multimedia graduate students in the University of Miami’s School of Communication.
