|and here's a photo of a photo (by Kevin Carter) from thursday's newspaper that tugged at my heart; a child in the Sudan, curled up dyeing of hunger with a vulture waiting in the background; and like the patient vulture, Carter waited for the perfect moment to take this picture and left, a year later he won the Pulitzer Prize. Kevin Carter was a South-African news-photographer who started working during the years of apartheid in South Africa, he commited suicide at the age of 33, in a letter he stated he had seen too much pain, fear and death. The reason for thursday's newspaper article which this picture accompanies, is an exhibition by Alfredo Jaar 'The sound of Silence' in Rotterdam on Carter's life and work, in the Nederlands Fotomuseum. Maybe I will visit.|
Back in my studio, the two merged, the embryo and the image of a suffering child, knowing both lives were lost and I know it doesn't help anyone, but I just wanted to remember them both, here.
thanks Deanna: that is a very comforting thought
