Horribly disturbing photo.A vulture waiting for a starving child in Africa to die so that it can eat it up.
This was shot by a photojournalist named Kevin Carter in 1993-94 when he had gone to Sudan to report about the famine. The photo received lot of accolades and he was even awarded the Pulitzer prize for photography.
Carter himself said later that he spent 20 mins adjusting the camera to take the best shot. And immediately after taking the pic, he fled from the scene without helping the child. It seems the child was actually crawling towards a food camp which was just 200 meters away. All he needed to do after taking the photo was to pick the child and spend a min to walk till the camp and leave it there, which he unfortunately did not do. He also said that he felt guilty for not having helped the child and returned to the same place after a week and was told that the child was no more.
This created lot of roars across the world and every newspaper/magazine criticized him for not being human enough to help the child.The St. Petersburg Times in Florida said : “The man adjusting his lens to take just the right frame of her suffering, might just as well be a predator, another vulture on the scene”
3 months after winning the Pulitzer prize, Carter committed suicide.

However, after this photograph was taken, its impact helped change the world and opened the worlds eyes to the horror and encouraged society to help in regards to poverty stricken areas. To this day this image has encouraged more good than harm and therefore Carter did the right thing.
Photojournalists that are put in this position always have the hardest decision to make, capture a moment that evokes such passion and emotion or not and help the subject. Those photographers that choose the former create some of the most powerful imagery known to man.
