30 Things # 8

A photo that makes you sad:

I remember learning about this photograph, taken by Kevin Carter, in an art class in college. This photo, taken in Sudan, shows a vulture who is basically waiting for this child to die so that it can prey on its body. The fate of the child was not known and although Carter scared the vulture away, he came under criticism for not helping the girl. He was even called a vulture himself. Kevin Carter won the Pulitzer prize for this photo, but ultimately took his life three months later.
