This was taken during the Sudan famine. A small boy is seen crawling towards a UN relief camp located a kilometer away. A vulture sits in the background waiting for the child to die.
This gave Kevin Carter a “Pulitzer Prize”, but he committed suicide three months later since he couldn’t get this image out of this mind.
