What an awful photo. I can't imagine someone taking a photo of this, instead of helping the child.

To me this photo says more about the photographer, than the famine in Sudan. It should never have a won the Pulitzer.

Hwen, did you read the whole story about Kevin Carter?

Hi Yen. Yes I did. I read the story in Time before I commented.

this pic still brought tears to my eyes. to me, he did his job well (as a photographer), if he help this child, he help 1(one) child. when the pic went to the world, he helped all the starving people by bringing attention to the problem.
