Oh yes, it's a famous photo. But please keep in mind, that about ten years ago mr. Capa's negatives turned out to show that this particular scene was photographed several time (the soldier getting up and fallind down again and again) - making this a very much staged photo.

Your information is not what is being said today,if you cheek it out at the internatiinal Center of Photography Midtown New York.Richard Whelan,the biographer of Robert Capa has a very different story to tell. Ed Huntington

i'm studying a level photography and the exam question i've been presented with assumes that capa's soldier was indeed staged, this is the basis for the whole question! whether is was staged or not, i don't think it matters, it has something important to say and i'm worried by how much people are concerned with whether it was staged or not when there are still people dying in this way. this is what we should be focussing our attention on. amy
