Kevin Carter and his Image, which has actually received different names, likely most referred to as The Vulture and the Little Girl is a photograph and story that all photographers should know about. The amount of awareness it raised, even to this day are powerfully unforgettable once you have seen it. But as we saw in the Execution in Saigon image, there is more to it than meets the eye. The fallout towards Kevin Carter while unexpected, is valuable lesson on the psychological weight such subjects have on the photographer.

More historical image commentary to come.
