Andres Restrepo Homework #3

To be honest, the first time i saw this image i was pretty skeptical myself. But after reading Richard Whelan’s article on proving that Robert Capa’s “Falling Soldier” is genuine, it became clear to me that it was. Richard provides the article with enough evidence to prove that the image is not staged. He points out every aspect of the image from the angle it is taken, to the soldiers position. Of course authenticity matters. that is what creates true photography in my opinion. Capa caught the image the second the soldier was shot. Another reason to prove Capa did not stage this, well, Capa risked his life trying to get photographs on D-Day. I don’t think anyone with the guts to do that will stage an image like this. #studentHW
