I think Steve McCurry should pay Sharbat Gula royalties since he became a millionaire off her image, while she remained a refugee.

Sharbat Gula, an Afghan woman whose portrait was featured on the cover of National Geographic in 1985, was evacuated to Rome after the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, the Italian government said.

@thecynicist He exploited her forcefully took her picture and then posted it without her knowledge or permission became famous and for years she didn't even know about it. Later on because of that she faced a lot of problems.

@thecynicist He will claim he did send her money after he 'found' her in 2002 but the money never got to her. Stolen by some local assistant who was meant to take it to her.
