"I am depressed ... I am haunted by the vivid memories of killings and corpses and anger and pain ... of starving or wounded children, of trigger-happy madmen, often police, of killer executioners ..."Even the photographer suffered. I learned about Kevin Carter several years ago, when I read Masha Hamilton's 2004 novel The Distance Between Us, which mentions him. Her book is dedicated to "Kevin Carter and journalists everywhere who put their bodies and their souls on the line to cover war." This photo, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography in 1994, haunts me. How does it make you feel?
What do you think Wheatley means when she asks us, "What am I willing to notice in my world?"
