Back in 1993, Kevin Carter, a photographer captured an image of a malnourished boy. A photojournalist whose attempt to show the real ground condition of a starving child in Sudan was widely criticized for a well-known reason. Even though this picture gave him an award, it took away his life.
These are the days where every one of us has a beautiful camera and cheap internet services. We enjoy our beautiful journey with a click that is supposed to be a memory for days to come.
But at the same time, the living conditions of people below the poverty line has not changed. They have been struggling for their basic needs, including food, water, and shelter.
