The Greatest War Photograph

It turns out that the Robert Capas “Death of a Loyalist Soldier” was in fact real, despite popular controversial belief. I believe that the pictures authenticity plays a big part on how it impacts that person looking at it, if the person knows it is fake they will just pass it by and it will have no effect on them. If the person believes the picture to be real them it will make them question what the person died for and how. A picture of a solider dying mid-battle makes you wonder if it is that simple to die instantly on the field. it makes you ask yourself is going to war worth it, if your just going to die just like that. I originally thought most war photos were fake because how do you get that close to the action and not get hurt or get captured.
