when i saw this picture my heart broke....but when i read the story I almost broke down and cried.
This picture shows a child crawling towards a Unites Nations food camp, located a kilometer away.The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it. This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows hat happend to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.
Kevin Crter won the " Pulitzer prize" with this amazing picture which broke a lot of hearts.
Three months later he commited suicide due to depression.

Why would he save that child? Thats a question no one ever wants to find out....


  1. Very good post, Laura.
    I agree with you completely: it's a great pic because it makes us think about this child's situation. And it arises the big question: Why didn't the photographer help the child???
    Who knows?

  2. Sorry, I meant Nuria
    Good job, Nuria
