Photo Culture #11: Robert Capa

One of the most controversial images in the history of photography and one of the most famous and important of the 20th century. In August 1936 Robert Capa left for Spain with the intention of documenting the Spanish Civil War on the front line. Capa is passionate about the anti-fascist cause, takes a stand, becomes a militant, telling like no other the strength and courage of men in struggle and the difficulties of an afflicted and innocent people. The photo, known as “The Falling Soldier”, was taken on the Cordoba front, in Cerro Muriano, during a Loyalist offensive.
