Coal Miner, West Virginia

Eddie Adams was born June 12 1933, and died at the age of 71 on September 19, 2004.
He won a Pulitzer Prize and was noted for his photographs of politicians, celebrities, and of the thirteen wars that he photographed. Eddie was served in the Marine Corps as a combat photographer. He also won the George Polk Award in 1967, 1977, and 1978 for News Photography.

This picture looks a little sad. There is a guy who has been working in the mines all day, who looks beat, and all he has is his little horse. There is no one else around which makes it look like he is all alone, which makes me feel bad for him. And on top of him being alone, his horse doesn’t look to healthy either.
