Kevin Carter became (in)famous having snapped this photo during the Famine in Sudan in 1993:
He won a Pulitzer for the photo, but shortly thereafter committed suicide.
At the time there was much commentary along the lines that Carter himself was a vulture, waiting for this child to die, instead of intervening and helping her.
Was his lack of interference excusble in any way?
Should news reporters/journalists/photojournalists etc. get involved in their story if they think they can help?
