Robert Capa: Photographs by Cornell Capa
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The photojournalist Robert Capa did not only photograph the cruel images of war; he earned a name for himself by becoming involved in the lives of his subjects with an intimacy rarely seen in the photography of his contemporaries. Capa also focused his lens on celebrations and life's pleasures, and left behind many intimate portraits of friends like Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Truman Capote and Ernest Hemingway. The book contains thirteen chapters demonstrating the extraordinary scope and diversity of the images from two decades that made Capa one of the world's most distinguished photographers, and chronicles the work of Capa in the same way Capa chronicled the brutality and beauty of the modern age.

Author Biography

Robert Capa was born in 1937 in Budapest and was subsequently driven from Hungary by political oppression. He was first recognized for photographing the Spanish Civil War, and during his lifetime, he photographed some of the most momentous events of the century, including the Japanese invasion of China in 1938, the liberation of Paris and the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, and the founding of Istael in 1948. Away from the front lines. Capa was surrounded throughout his life by such celebrities and luminaries as Ernest Hemingway, Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, and Pablo Picasso. His photographs have appeared in major magazines including Life, Time, Look, Picture Post, The New York Herald Tribune, among others. In 1954, on assignment for Life, Capa went to Vietnam where he was killed by stepping on a land mine.
