This picture is the Pulitzer Prize-Winning image. In 1993, South African photojournalist Kevin Carter traveled to Sudan to capture the famine. This picture of a collapsed baby and a vulture stalking over her did not cause public outrage but also stirred a lot of criticism directed towards the photographer for capturing the child and not helping her. 

Later, it was found that the mother was sitting next to the scene, and the child was not in danger of getting attacked by the vulture. 

Also, the photo was shot with a longer telephone lens which makes a scene more compressed and focusing on the bird looking closer. 

12. Stanley Forman’s Famous Photo Woman Falling from Fire Escape

It was a shocking picture of a woman falling from the fire escape. Forman was a well-known photographer who worked for the Boston Herald when he captured the scene of the fire. He was documenting the rescue of a young woman and a child, and suddenly this scene took a turn when the fire escape collapsed. 

The woman and child started falling, and he continued to shoot. He lowered his camera and captured everything. He won a Pulitzer prize and left several legacy questions based on pictures - he should stop shooting and if it is okay publishing disturbing images.

Oatman and her sister were adopted by the Chief, and her family, along with sisters, and were given chin tattoos. Her sister died before release, and her story resonated with the media for a long time. Ann Oatman died of a heart attack in 1903.
