He was instructed to not touch anyone because of disease, so he didn't help her. He took the picture instead. The photo got him a pulitzer prize. Not long after, he killed himself because of the emotional effect his travel and what he saw had on him. This picture remains one of his legacies.

The story behind this photo is even sadder. The photographer was there to take pictures of the famine. He snapped this picture of a little girl. She was trying so hard to get to a red cross station only a few feet away, all the time being stalked by a vulture.

The story behind the picture is that this little girl was on her way to a feeding station when she collapsed. Carter was not permitted to have contact with the people because of disease. He took the picture instead. The NYTimes published it, he won the pultzer and shortly after killed himself. Depression from seeing so much violence took it's toll.

The small hand at the corner was taken in 1980. A kid in Uganda about to die of hunger, and a missionaire. The main picture is a Sudaneese girl. The photo was taken by Kevin Carter. Here is a great article about him: http://backissues.cjrarchives.org/year/94/6/apartheid.asp

This is so sad, since I was a little girl I have seen pictures like this.... when will it stop. If you ask me - never. I don't know why we can't help these poor people in a better way than we already do. This is a huge problem in Africa and with civilian wars so many places it doesn't make the situation better.
Great page to put into the challenge - but a very sad story behind.

Thanksgiving took on a new meaning for me after feeling the impact this photo had on me so many years ago.

Every picture tells a story, and this one says one billion words.
