Syria's revolution and the power of the image!

An excellent revisit to Kevin Carter's work on war photography, how powerful the image could be in exposing the ugliness of conflict and repression. John Rich's article is in Arabic, but highly recommended on this subject. Carter's award winning photograph, shown below, is about a girl in Sudan who was starving, while a vulture waited for her to collapse. She was desperately trying to reach a refugee camp to escape the Gengewid's bloody campaign. Bashir, the Sudanese president, is very much still in power with less international demands for his arrest. Will the same happen in Syria after a series of powerful images?
