War photography

War photography became a primary form of invoking patriotism beginning in World War One with the advent of film that could capture soldiers in action. Documenting everything from training and battle to the return home, War Photography is a widely recognized and respected category of documentary photography. Often reproduced and widely circulated, authentication of War Photographs is essential to establish provenance.

While Robert Capa is synonymous with War Photography, others are known more for their images than their household name. For example, Flag Raising at Iwo Jima by Joe Rosenthal and Sailor Kissing Girl in Times Square by Alfred Eisenstaedt have established themselves in American visual history. Important for their context and historical contributions, War Photography continues to be highly collectable.
