Kevin Chanderdat= Homework #3: Robert Capa’s Death of a Loyalist Soldier

Robert Whelan, a writer for PBS, did an in-depth analysis of photographer Robert Capa’s and his art work/photography. Upon reading his analysis he comes to the conclusion that Capa’s most famous photograph “Death of a Loyalist Soldier” is in fact not staged. A lot of people to this day believed that Capa’s photography is not of a true soldier being shot. Whelan’s argument is very convincing by laying everything on the table and examined almost every inch of the historic photograph.  Authentic or not, I believe the photographs taken by Capa was able to depict scenarios of the war in that time. If a photo is able to tell a story then the objective is met, in my opinion.
