Respond: The Greatest War Photograph and Robert Capa

Observing the photo of Robert Capa “Falling Solider” you can see that the postion the “solider” is showing while falling looks staged. With how his hands is towards the back makes you think that he is doing this to brace himself from the fall. Probably during that time viewing photos like this convinced people to think that the photo wasn’t staged and that how a solider will really look getting shot during a gun fight, which can be true but there is still clues that show that if you really look will tell you it was staged. To be marked as a fake photo is the wrong way to define this photo. I rather call it a staged photo because Capa did go through the effort to make this photo be the best war photo of all.
