Iraq's child prodigy

Meet Iraq's youngest certified professional photographer, second-grader Qamar Hashem Sultan.


    Iraq's youngest photographer was born in the same year his country was invaded by the United States.

    But the young man known as the boy wonder refuses to take any pictures of the violence that surrounds him.

    Armed with a digital camera, a knack for picture-taking and an exceptional talent, Sultan's work is now being submitted to the Guinness World Records.
