HW#3- Lauren Woods

I do find Richard’s argument to be very convincing. Though, I first thought that the photo was staged, I came to the conclusion the photo is not. Capa caught the bullet hitting the body of the downed solider, right as he is falling to the ground. Critics would view this photo as staged, because of the angle in which the photo was taken, how the solider is dressed, and  the way he is photographed hitting the floor. Not knowing, that this photo is photography at its best. Richard stated that the man in the photograph was in deed among the fatalities of the war, when discovery of the day the death occurred came to light. I honestly think authenticity of the photograph doesn’t matter. Once the message that needs to be portrayed gets out to the viewers, brings awareness, and touches someone’s heart then the job of the photographer is done.
