Re: Kevin Carter ... Pulitzer Prize Pic

But if the Silva version is correct. The childs mother left her there, while she went to get food. The photographer chased the vulture off. So he did do a good thing. Also we can't tell by the pic, exactly what is around her. She may not have been as alone and isolated at the pic makes you think. That aside, I think I would have taken the pic, picked up the child and taken her some where safer from birds ect.

He scared the bird off. The child made it to a UN food station.

Theres a movie coming out about this called The Bang Bang Club.

What the photog saw did end up driving him to suicide.

That was back when you actually had to do something to earn a Pulitzer Prize. This year, it seems they've decided to just hand them out for no good reason at all.

By the way, I just wanted to give a big shout out to obama. That... Pulitzer Prize winning... guy.

Yeah your an expert on photography then, and must obviously be a judge for the Pulitzer contenders.
