An award-winning photojournalist, Bill Brett is well known for his long career at The Boston Globe. In 2017, he began work on Boston: Game Changers, his sixth book, which is due out by the end of the year. His work can be seen regularly on the print pages and online platforms of The Globe as well as online at and through his own active social media. Bill started his news career hawking The Boston Globe on the street corners of Dorchester and first worked at The Globe as an 18-year-old part-time photographer, learning the art of photography and the business of news at the same time. In 1977, he was named chief photographer at The Globe. He was the photography-member of The Globe team nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism in 1978 and 1979. In 1999, Bill became Director of Photography, a position from which he “retired” in 2001.
