I was going to post the jpeg of Kevin Carter's photograph on the blog- but then changed my mind. I feel a little conflicted about ambushing those looking on the site with the image. If you want to see the photo and read more about Carter you should look at this website: http://www.flatrock.org.nz/topics/odds_and_oddities/ultimate_in_unfair.htm
The other photographer that I referred to in class is named James Nachtwey- his website contains many of his most-well known photographs. http://www.jamesnachtwey.com/
If you are interested in contemporary photojournalism- or even just interested in having a visual illustration of what is described in the book- check out the websites (particularly Nachtwey's website under the "famine" heading).
