Robert Capa – The Greatest War Photograph

When we were having a debate during our last meeting about the “Fallen Solider Photograph,” I did make a point about the left hand being curled and I was very pleased to have read about it in the article, “Franks told me in conversation that the fact that the fingers are somewhat curled toward the palm clearly indicates that the manā€™s muscles have gone limp and that he is already dead. Hardly anyone faking death would ever know that such a hand position was necessary in order to make the photograph realistic.” Whether or not the photograph was staged or not, having coming to learn about the grave lengths that Robert Capa went for his art, I have gained commendableĀ appreciation for Ā him as a photographer.
