Kevin Carter (1960-1994)

You might have heard the song 'Kevin Carter' by The Manic Street Preachers...well its about this man. He was an award winning South African photojournalist who committed suicide due to depression because of the many traumatic experiences during his career. His work is astonishing, and when you read a bit more about of him, hes probably one of the most risk taking photographers you've ever heard about. He was a member of the Bang Bang Club who were a group of photographers during the apartheid in south africa. One of the most shocking photos ive ever seen is the one below. Whether your interested in photography or not this man really is interesting to read about.
