To document or to intervene?

A vulture watches a starving child in southern Sudan, March 1, 1993.  Kevin Carter/CORBIS/Sygma

It may be difficult for people to understand, but as a photojournalist, my first instinct was to make the photograph. As soon as that job was done and the child moved on, I felt completely devastated. I think I tried to pray; I tried to talk to God to assure Him that if He got me out of this place I would change my life.   -- Kevin Carter  (1960-1994)
