Richard Whelan’s arguments are extremely compelling because there’s no clear evidence that Robert Capa’s photograph was fake. Based on Whelan’s article and common knowledge of Capa’s photograph, I think the death of this soldier was real. The body position and the way the soldier falls before he hits the ground should be enough to convince viewers the authenticity of this photograph, and Whelan’s evidence should definitely be enough to prove that Capa’s photograph is real. The photograph’s authenticity probably doesn’t matter now because the Spanish Civil war was over a century ago and anyone who was living during that time is died, so there’s no physical prove of the soldier’s identity.
