The reading confused me even more. In the beginning I was convinced that the picture was staged because of how the soldier was positioned. It didn’t look that real as if he really got shot. Just the whole positioning of his body and the gun. If you pay attention to the background of the photo it doesn’t look as if it was during a war. I feel as though you would see bodies or rubbish laying around. What stands out to me the most is the fact that Capa thought to capture a great photo he needed to be there. He needed to be in the presence of the war. He risked endangering his life to capture a photo. That alone shows me some proof it might be real. I’m still indecisive on whether to believe if its real or not. Regardless if its staged or real, Capa has a big name in the history of photography.
