这张照片于1993年3月26日发表在《纽约时报》上。这引发了公众的强烈反应(Sey, 2015)。随着《纽约时报》的发表,公众开始质疑这位摄影师,并发表声明称,孩子成功抵达食品配送中心。然而,该报进一步断言,后来发生了什么仍不清楚。

据Carter估计,食品中心每小时有超过20人死亡,由于害怕传播疾病,孩子无法被触摸(Sey, 2015)。然而,尽管有这些事实,卡特在几次事件中表示遗憾,他不能帮助这个女孩,即使他实际上不能做多少。卡特就是这样一个悲剧的例子,人类苦难的照片可以对任何人造成伤害。卡特拍摄了一系列让他陷入抑郁的照片(Kim & Kelly, 2013)。这是卡特所有摄影作品的结果,这些作品都是集体拍摄的,并且极度暴露在生动捕捉的暴力镜头下。因此,卡特决定在1994年7月27日自杀,留下了遗书。

The photograph of the Sudanese child being eyed by the vulture has been the most famous and criticized photo of Carter.
This photo was published on the 26th March of 1993 in the New York Times. This sparked major public reaction (Sey, 2015). The public started to question the photographer along with the Times due to which they published a statement mentioning that the child successfully reached the food distribution center. However the newspaper further asserted that what happened afterwards remains unknown.
It was estimated by Carter that more than 20 people were dying at an hourly rate within the food center due to which the child could not be touched in the fear of transmittable diseases (Sey, 2015). However, regardless of these facts, Carter had expressed regrets in several instances of him being unable to assist the girl even if he could not do much actually. Carter is an example of such tragic toll that photographs of human suffering can take on any individual. Carter has captured a variety of images that spiraled him in depression (Kim & Kelly, 2013). This was the result of all the photographical work by Carter taken collectively and extreme exposure to the vividly captured violence. As a result, Carter decided to commit suicide on the 27th July of 1994, leaving behind a suicide note.

The position taken is against the actions of the photo journalist, suggesting that Carter should have disrupted the photograph and initially moved towards placing the child in a safe spot away from the vulnerability. Then Carter should have proceeded to photograph the child along with her conditions (Sey, 2015). Hence it is concluded that the criticism was reasonable to an extent and the responsibility of the photographer is of critical nature wherein capturing a vulnerable subject is concerned.
