The Story Behind The Picture: Starving Boy and a Missionary

A photo taken by Mike Wells from United Kingdom. It was taken in Karamoja district, Uganda, April 1980. The photo won the World Press Photo award for the same year.

Wells felt indignant that the same publication that sat on his picture for five months without publishing it, while people were dying, entered it into a competition. He was embarrassed to win as he never entered the competition himself, and was against winning prizes with pictures of people starving to death.
