The Greatest War Photograph and Robert Capa David B

From the moment I first gazed upon Robert Capa’s “Death of a Loyalist Soldier” I knew that it was real. Richard Whelan’s analysis only confirmed this belief. I completely understand why skeptics thought this image was staged. It was the first photograph that captured a man dying in war. At this time in the world, what photographer wouldn’t stage something like this? But Robert Capa just so happened to be at the right place at the right time.  Whelan really goes into a deep analysis of the photograph, giving each part of the photograph a high attention to detail. Personally, (decades later)  I think Richard Whelan has confirmed the authenticity of Robert Capa’s “Death of a Loyalist Soldier”.
