Response to The Greatest War Photograph and Robert Capa

I don’t think Robert Capas photo is staged. You can pick almost any other famous photo and speculate if its staged or not, especially if its recent. I would love to have proof that this photo is without a doubt real to stop the naysayers but that’s impossible. I do believe that if a photo is staged its harder to connect with it. If you saw a picture that you really liked and could connect with it in whatever way and then someone told you it was staged or made with CGI you’d feel a different way. The point of a photograph is to capture a moment in time if that moment is made or never existed then its harder to connect with.
