Synopsis: Cornell Capa the photographer has long been overshadowed by Cornell Capa the founder and director of the International Center of Photography, New York, and by Cornell Capa the brother of Robert Capa. This beautiful cloth-bound book, filled with 27 of his most intelligent, compassionate, formally striking images, promises to bring the photographer his due. He once told "Camera" magazine, "Single photographs are not what I do best. My most effective work is groups of photographs which hang together and tell stories." Nevertheless, the pictures included here sum up and transcend those stories. Imbued with the very essence of the specific situations or person that they portray, yet simultaneously resonant with universal human experience, they mark Cornell Capa as what he called a "concerned photographer," one who is passionately dedicated to doing work that will contribute to the understanding and well being of humanity.
