The Falling Soldier

By observing Capa’s photograph of the Falling Soldier is hard for me to decide whether or not the photograph was staged. Based on Mr. Frank’s explanation of the photograph and Mr. Whelan wide argument I’ve come to the conclusion that the photograph was not staged. I think there has been many times were photographs have been exaggerated and/or staged in other to provide the viewer some sort of results, to provoke an emotion and to fulfill a purpose. I honestly believe that there’s nothing wrong with exaggerating or staging a photograph as long as is not for a negative purpose. As Mr. Whelan suggest, I think is time to let Capa and Borrell rest in peace and end this argument of whether the Falling Soldier was staged or not.
