About this title

Synopsis:

Gerda Taro was a pioneer photojournalist--the first woman to photograph in the heat of battle--whose legacy, cut short by her untimely death at the age of 27, consists almost exclusively of photographs from the very front lines of the Spanish Civil War, one of the twentieth century's most important conflicts. Taro's images are a little-known record of a pivotal moment in the history of war photography, though she worked alongside the legendary photojournalist Robert Capa, who was her photographic as well as romantic partner, and the two collaborated closely (as Capa's manager, Taro is often credited for launching his career). While Taro was covering the decisive Battle of Brunete in July, the car in which she was traveling was broad sided by a Republican tank; she died from her injuries the next day. This volume, the first major collection of Taro's photographs ever published, introduces nearly 100 of her images, courtesy of New York's International Center of Photography, which now holds the world's largest collection of her work, including nearly 200 prints and original negatives.
