Patrick Farrell has been a photographer at The Miami Herald since 1987. He is the recipient of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for his photographs of the devastation in Haiti caused by a particularly brutal hurricane season.
Farrell has documented three decades of major news events, both locally and abroad, including the 1989 race riots in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood; political and civil unrest in Haiti during the 1994 military rule of that country; the 1999 earthquake in Turkey; the Columbine High School massacre; childhood poverty in the Americas; and Hurricane Andrew’s 1992 path of destruction in South Florida, for which he and the entire Miami Herald staff won the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
He was one of 10 journalists from around the world awarded Dart Center Ochberg Fellowships in 2010 from the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism. The fellowships are for mid-career journalists seeking to deepen their coverage of violence and traumatic events.

In 1981, he graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in television and film production. Farrell started his career working at two small South Florida dailies.
