Pulitzer Prize Winner

The photo above is the “Pulitzer Prize” winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine. The picture depicts a famine sticken child crawling towards an United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it.

This picture shockd the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter  who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later Kevin Carter committed suicide due to depression
