I remember the day when world first witnessed the best photography of Kevin Carter (Vulture waiting for Child to Die) for which he got Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography. This pictures sent waves across the world and it was the most debated topic of 1994. The idea behind posting this image on this technical blog was just to make our-self think for a moment beyond the technological enhancements. We are human beings not the technical machines but real magic plays-in when we realize the values of being human.
In March 1993, while on a trip to Sudan, Carter was preparing to photograph a starving toddler trying to reach a feeding center when a hooded vulture landed nearby. Carter reported taking the picture, because it was his “job title”, and leaving. He was told not to touch the children due to transmitting disease.
This was found in his diary-
“Dear God, I promise I will never waste my food no matter how bad it can taste and how full I may be. I pray that He will protect this little boy, guide and deliver him away from his misery. I pray that we will be more sensitive towards the world around us and not be blinded by our own selfish nature and interests. I hope this picture will always serve as a reminder to us that how fortunate we are and that we must never ever take things for granted.”
