Robert Capa

Some of you may already be aware of the photographer Robert Capa, but until i done some research on D-Day, i had no idea he existed or even photos of D-Day existed. He truly is as epic a photographer you can get, risking his life and willingly going out into war to photograph its events. Whilst reading into his work on D-Day, it turns out that he captured hundreds of photos for the 'Life Magazine', the company he was working for at the time, but due to an heating accident in the dark room, 3 and a half out of 4 rolls were lost with only 11 frames remaining, now known as The Magnificent Eleven.

Just from this small number of remaining photographs you can see how true Spielberg was to the events that took place on that day.
