There were two vultures on that day, one waiting to eat the baby and one holding a camera waiting to eat from the proceeds of the camera. This world is full of pathetic vultures with cameras

Reading everybody's comments, thinking we all pass a starving human almost everyday and most of the time we ignore that person yet we are quick to judge. This photo is trying to tell us to be better and to open our eyes instead of living in our own bubble.

SHEPHERDS & SHEEP Woe to the shepherd If his foe is his herd And damned is the sheep On a pasture they can't reap. pic.twitter.com/gd0sBsFLfd

The photographer couldn't give him food, whaaat馃檮?
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Its pointless to display these pictures if humanity has still allowed for such events to still occur a good 2 decades after
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
It never made sense for him to sit and take a picture instead of doing something to make the vulture go away.. He was after awards and glory and fame Where was his God-Consciousness ? Or was it because the child is black?
 
A picture that became a wrenching case study in the debate over when photographers should intervene.
Readers were eager to find out what happened to the child鈥攁nd to criticize Carter for not coming to his subject鈥檚 aid 馃う馃槖馃槓馃槶

#CORRECTION ..... some dead souled photographer waited for a child to die without helping to get a shot of a vulture likewise waiting for the child to die.... #2Vultures

Without the picture no one would have believed the extent of what was happening there.
 
If I had super powers I would end world hunger.
 
every time i see this photo it reminds me of readers digest
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
So the person taking the photo will watch him die and also watch him being eaten up?
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Carter's capture by the lens in this picture raised concerns on the ethics of journalism and storytelling. If he chose to chase away the vulture, he wouldn't tell a story. If he took the pic like he did, he would tell a story. Of what value was his story if the kid died!
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
They could afford a camera and not a piece of bread to help the starving??
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Did the child made it? Leave alone the photographer
 
and a heartless photographer decided to take a picture instead of helping

I doubt he made it... Sudan should stop feeding Al-Bashir in detention.
 
you photographers are ice cold, yikes, especially the ones who photograph people.
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Ok I get the part that the photographer was cruel...but what about the UN? The people who should be responsible for feeding the needy what were/are they doing??

Who took this picture seriously 馃ぇ
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Yeah I remember reading about this in a book that I loved by @BrigidKemmerer (Letters to the lost I think) It stuck with me since then. Though I'm seeing the picture itself for the first time today.

For we to stay safe in this world,the first thing we need is looking for God's presence in our life.This matters so much since the World we are living in has circumstances which are challenging and they sometimes happen involuntarily or uncertainly

Twist: The photographer committed suicide.
 
Africa needs to stop Europeans from going to the omo valley still taking pictures of naked women and girls and selling them online and uploading them to Instagram

Soo what happened to the child? Kevin took the pic n got the award bt whrs the kid? Did he survive? Did the village get help? pic.twitter.com/AeHgYpVOua
 
We can criticize the photographer all we want and as unfortunate as the scene was, it was meant to be seen.
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Same as African governments... Wait for the ruled to perish to gain.
 
In reply to @Africa_Archives
Maybe he took the picture and attended to the child???

This picture grinds my gears always,cause the photographer's first instinct is to take a picture,really my guy?
