When reading the article the writer mentioned that both The Falling Soldier and the photograph, showing a man in a further state of collapse show the same man. Both man do look similar but you can’t really tell. It can be possibly due, to the angle of the image that it’s hard to tell if it’s the same person. When looking at both images I can’t really tell if they are staged. Even if it was staged it ended up being publish and the photographer became famous for those images. Everyone views the photos differently and we can’t be certain if they are staged or not. Both images will forever be viewed as the best war photos that still has controversy regarding if it’s staged or not.
