"The prize-winning image: A vulture watches a starving child in southern Sudan, March 1, 1993. Carter’s winning photo shows a heart-breaking scene of a starving child collapsed on the ground, struggling to get to a food center during a famine in the Sudan in 1993. In the background, a vulture stalks the emaciated child. Carter was part of a group of four fearless photojournalists known as the “Bang Bang Club” who traveled throughout South Africa capturing the atrocities committed during apartheid. Haunted by the horrific images from Sudan, Carter committed suicide in 1994 soon after receiving the award.”

“Let light be
Let life in
Let man live
Let time referee
Born to a world that’s sick and ailed
All head out the world to change
Time sits back pops a corn and change
As all efforts to resuscitate the world has failed”

First #ThrowBackThursday Picture

Hello!

So this is a new category on obafuntay(dot)com. #ThrowBackThursday
