Mike Wells

 Starving Boy and a Missionary.
 The following photo was taken in Uganda in the Karamoja District in 1980.
This picture won the 1980 World Press Photo of the Year.  

 As you can imagine i am hardly proud or happy to put this on my blog. The first thing that runs through your mind its shame isnt it? Surely nothing can be this bad? Well photographic proof that things are much worse then people expect. 

There couldn't have been no greater way to show the fragility of the Uganda people then by contrasting the missionary hand with the boys hand.
