Photojournalist Nick Ut began taking pictures for the Associated Press when he was 16 years old. On June 8, 1972, he took this Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of Kim Phuc and other children running from a napalm attack. On June 8, 2007, exactly 35 years later, Ut took another photograph of a crying girl, Paris Hilton in the back of a sheriff’s vehicle on her way back to jail. The contrast between the circumstances of the two photos is quite jarring. (via Fark)
