    A stark image of a person killing another one in real life. It stays with me for a long time.

    Another one is the Eugene Smith's black and white photo of a Japanese mother bathing her deformed daughter cause by mercury poisoning.

    If this thread serves any good at all it is to reminds us about death and misery and tragedy and our human compassion for the less fortunate ones.

    Here's the real photo:

    - hang out for hours at coffee joints like Starbucks, over a ciggie or few (not limited to only this activity. going to gigs, museums, photography trips are great too, to name a few). - i don't smoke and no coffee for me though i like the blackcurrant rasberry drink at starbucks.
    - teach me photography and perhaps go shoot with me every now and then. I do enjoy this and am still amateurish, so I'm welcome to learning from someone. - noob too

    - English speaking. - singlish can?
    - Interested in art/photography/writing. - only keen in photography, not an artsy person, good at flaming ppl online though

    I must say, the replies were a lot more entertaining than the original post.

    Not that the original post wasn't entertaining.

    I remember looking at a shot about a boy dying under a tree and up on that very tree, was a Vulture. Anyone know who took that photograph?

    I can only find this one by Kevin Carter. It's equally depressing. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat him:

    Not that, but somewhat like that. I remember the dead tree at the center of the photograph.
    Anyways nice find.

    I should look at Salgado's pictures again ... Have an oversized book on the floor called An Uncertain Grace, beautiful pictures.
