A worthy tribute to a crucial figure in photo-journalism
A fascinating chronicle of some of the 20th-Century?s key moments

This stunning collection showcases this legend?s most famous works as well as some recently re-discovered images. Born in Budapest in 1913, the self-schooled Robert Capa is considered the father of photo-journalism.

A fervent anti-war campaigner, it was his powerful record of the Spanish Civil War that brought him global fame. On moving to the USA in 1939, he became a war correspondent for Life magazine and the US military and cofounded the Magnum photo agency. His fearless chronicle of the Allied landings gained critical and public acclaim. Capa?s untimely death in 1954 came after a serious landmine injury in Vietnam.
