Famous Pulitzer Prize Photographer Kevin Carter
 Kevin Cater Carter came under criticism for his Pulitzer Prize
 photograph of the little girl in Sudan



Carter adjusted his lens to take the right frame of the suffering child
 might  as well be a predator, just like the vulture on the scene

This photo was sold to The New York Times where it appeared on March 26, 1993. Practically overnight hundreds of people contacted the newspaper to ask whether the child had survived, leading the newspaper to run a special editor's note saying the girl had enough strength to walk away from the vulture, but that her ultimate fate was unknown. In March 1993 Carter made a trip to southern Sudan. The sound of soft, high-pitched whimpering near the village of Ayod attracted Carter to an emaciated Sudanese toddler. The girl had stopped to rest while struggling to the food camp, whereupon a vulture had landed nearby. Kevin Carter later described the incident... he waited about 20 minutes, hoping that the vulture would spread its wings. It didn't. Carter snapped the haunting photograph and chased the vulture away. However, Carter came under criticism for not helping the little girl

Famine in Sudan Kevin Carter


Carter was the first to photograph a public execution by "necklacing" in South Africa mid-1980s. He later spoke of the images; "I was appalled at what they were doing. I was appalled at what I was doing. But then people started talking about those pictures... then I felt that maybe my actions hadn't been at all bad. Being a witness to something this horrible wasn't necessarily such a bad thing to do."
