“Kevin Carter’s Tumultuous Years” is a research blog dedicated to examine the Pulitzer Prize winning photo (shown below) by Kevin Carter, a photojournalist from South Africa. While this is for a U.S. History of Journalism class, there will be specific posts dedicated to examining how U.S. publications- such as The New York Times, Time Magazine and others- allow us to understand its reception of his photo and the comments made by audiences about the photo. The discussion of photo ethics and analyzing other academic sources will be made to discuss Carter’s decisions.
