The Pulitzer committee called the photographic work by winners of 2016's Pulitzer Prizes as pictures that stunned the world. The photographs frame moments ranging from the refugee crisis to slave labour in Indonesia, each moment articulated perfectly through the lens of a camera. 

Here are 14 of the prize winning photographs:
