The Vulture and The Starving Child

This photograph depicts a starving girl being preyed on by a vulture during a famine in South Sudan in 1993. It was taken by Kevin Carter, a South African photographer and member of a group of reportage photographers named “The Bang-Bang Club” in the early 90s, who documented violence towards the end of apartheid. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this image, including questions concerning the fate of the child pictured.
