About this title

Synopsis:

Collects documentary photographs of subjects such as wars, American soldiers, Paris, Israeli immigrants, a New York City gymnasium, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso

Review:

Robert Capa, whose images of the Spanish Civil War brought home the hideous suffering of that conflict and brought Capa international fame, is the 20th century's most accomplished photographer of warfare. This collection of Capa's work demonstrates that he was more than a war photographer: he was a master of depicting ordinary life in extraordinary circumstances. The volume includes an essay by Cornell Capa, the photographer's brother and the founder of the International Center for Photography, as well as a foreword by Henri Cartier-Bresson.
