Such bordeline sentences don't bring anything to the debate about how the Robert Capa myth was built over the years and decades.
I like to leave opinions about art from other people to themselves.
I am not tempted to define the term "art", but if you compare Capa's photographs with those of Cartier-Bresson, you will understand what I mean.
Because of the non-artistic quality of Capa's photographs, I am not inclined to investigate how the Robert Capa myth was built over the years and decades. I have better things to do. I spent my entire salary (and those of others) on the horses to pay my secretaries!

Erik.
