Robert Capa and the Greatest War Photograph

Whealan’s argument is convincing and in fact is relevant to the scenario during in the photograph. The photographer Gallagher who questioned the authenticity of Capa’s photo probably mistaken Capa for another photographer. The war photograph I believe is authentic because it was shot from a distance and the movement of the falling soldier seems impossible to stage. I do think authenticity matters because a photograph like this captures the attention of the mass should not be deceiving.
