This photograph captures the struggle a mother raising a daughter with Cerebral Palsy who cannot take care of herself goes through every day. This photograph is heart-wrenching. It is hard to imagine what it would be like as a photojournalist to be in the room capturing this. This photograph is a perfect example of how good photojournalists have to have a certain amount of dedication and passion to the subject they are reporting on. In this situation, the mother gave the photographer full access to her and her daughter’s lives because of the time he spent with the family. I think that this is what separates good photojournalists from  outstanding photojournalists who are able to capture the most intense emotions in their photographs. Compassion is feeling that every single person can relate to. A little of it can go a long way. This photograph was taken by Cameron Knight. More of his work can be found here.
