Abstract:

"Robert Capa, one of the preeminent photographers of the twentieth century, was a master of the cinematic photo narrative. His most striking images-of the Spanish Civil War, of the Sino-Japanese conflict, of World War II - appeared in the pages of the leading picture magazines of the day. Many of his most well-known photographs have come to define significant historical moments. It was their broad circulation in international picture magazines that first made them iconic. Some of the most visually sophisticated and politically engaged European and American magazines of the mid-century published Capa's photographs of war, including Vu, Regards, Match, Picture Post, and, of course, Life. This book and the exhibition it accompanies reexamine Capa's innovations as a photojournalist in the 1930s and 1940s. Vintage prints, contact sheets, caption sheets, handwritten observations, personal letters, and original magazine layouts reveal Capa's working process in the construction of six key photo stories."--BOOK JACKET.
