The Saddest Picture I Have Ever Seen
Sometimes, very rarely, a photograph can change our lives, open our eyes, make us notice. This is one of those rarest of rare photographs. It shows a vulture patiently watching over a starving Sudanese girl.
The photo is 15-years old but somehow I've never seen it before. It has been chosen by Vanity Fair as one of the 25-best news photographs of all time.
