Ceyda Yildiz Homework #3 Robert Capa’s Death of a Loyalist Soldier

I think Robert Whelan’s argument is very convincing. He explains everything in detail to prove that this infamous photograph by Capa was not staged. I think this picture is not staged , even though at first when i saw this photograph  in class i thought it was staged but after reading Whelan’s argument I’m convinced that it is not. I do think the authenticity matters. Yes, even though if the photograph was staged it tells a story but to know that it is real and not staged lets the viewer connect with the story more. Another reason i believe this argument is because if Capa photographed pictures from GI landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, risking his life there is a great chance he photographed this photograph of Death of Loyalist Soldier without staging it.
