Good vs Bad By Matthew Sousa


I think this photo illustrates a horrific site of what locals in the area were experiencing and rightfully caught the attention of people across the globe.

The photo is the “Pulitzer Prize” winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan Famine.
The picture depicts a child crawling towards a United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away.

The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat him. This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who
left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.
Three months later he committed suicide due to depression.

This is a photo of a couple that made headlines worldwide. It occurred during a riot in Vancouver when their NHL hockey team lost in the finals.
They were known as the kissing couple.

The photo captivates anyone’s attention that comes across it. It’s extremely powerful considering the focus point and its surroundings and the reason why I consider it a great photo.


This is a photo during the Occupy Atlanta movement that took place last year and it captures a young man getting his face slammed into pavement which is the main point of the picture. However, it’s not clear as the police officer is in the way of what the photographer is trying to capture.

I found this photo which I think was poorly taken. It demonstrates Protesters taking over a street during the Occupy Atalnta movement. I think it’s a bad picture because of the angle the photographer chose. In The photo would have been much better as a close-up.

  1. Now I'm depressed. That photo is incredibly disturbing--so I suppose it is a great shot. (How could the photog not help that baby? I don't understand the inhumanity.) And I totally remember seeing the Kissing Couple. Thanks for the examples.
