Stunning and great conceptual image. Good enough to feature on the cover of National Geographic Magazine imo.

Coke = medicine? My mom used to give me Coca-Cola syrup for an upset stomach. Yeah, I'll buy that. Great shot, underrated.

What a contrast of cultures! Or merging, or something. I'm not sure what the word is I am looking for.

Safer than the drinking water, I suspect! An interesting socio-documentary type image.

Is there anywhere on the planet where one cannot find Coca-Cola? This is excellent photojournalism.

5 - Unique image - what has been captured is so 'wrong' on a few levels.

There's alot going on in this photo. Is she pregnant? Is she crying? Why is she giving the baby cola? I'll be anxious to find this after the voting ends to read the details! Best of luck!
