Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Capa, the most celebrated photojournalist of the 20th century and a founder of Magnum Photos, used Paris as a global platform for his photogandshy;raphy throughout his career. Robert Capa: The Paris Years 1933and#8211;1954 tells Capaand#8217;s story by focusing on his Paris studio.

Recently many artifacts have surfaced, including the so-called and#8220;Mexican suitcase,and#8221; which contained Capaand#8217;s Spanish civil war negatives. These newly discovered documents, which were either created in or found in his Paris studio, are featured in the book.

With original textual analysis and both rare and renowned images, Robert Capa offers a newly informed, fresh look into the life of this revered photographer.

Praise for Robert Capa:

"Historians and photographers alike will be rewarded by the authors' excellent blend of narration and academic analysis, coupled with a generous helping of groundbreaking photos, many of which have never been published before." and#8212;Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [235]-236).

About the Author

Robert Capa was born in Budapest in 1913. At twenty-two he traveled to Spain to photograph the Spanish Civil War and soon established a reputation as one of the greatest war photojournalists in history. On May 25, 1954, in French Indochina, Capa was the first American photographer to die in what would become the Vietnam War.
