Robert Capa: Photographs

Overview

In an almost novelistic fashion, the pictures--presented chronologically--tell as much about the photographer as they do about the times Capa was chronicling. --Margarett Loke, ARTnews
"His coverage of the Spanish civil war established Capa's reputation as a peerless battlefield photojournalist... But he was also a man who loved making pictures of beautiful women, famous men and grand parties. Often overlooked when discussing the Capa legacy, those too, were his life's work. ...

Overview

In an almost novelistic fashion, the pictures--presented chronologically--tell as much about the photographer as they do about the times Capa was chronicling. --Margarett Loke, ARTnews
"His coverage of the Spanish civil war established Capa's reputation as a peerless battlefield photojournalist... But he was also a man who loved making pictures of beautiful women, famous men and grand parties. Often overlooked when discussing the Capa legacy, those too, were his life's work. Both Capas--the raconteur of high society and the fearless witness to war--are evident in Robert Capa: Photographs. The two sides of Capa's work may seem irreconcilable, but they're not. He was recording one world. His own."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Capa's (1913-1954) photographs have become icons of the horrors and futility of war. This volume contains some of his most dramatic pictures of the battles he coveredthe Spanish Civil War, the Japanese invasion of China in 1938, the European theater during WWII, the Israeli War for Independence in 1948 and the French-Indochina War. Capa risked his life to capture these images, going ashore in Normandy with the first wave of troops to hit Omaha Beach on D-Day, parachuting into Germany with American troops in 1945 and accompanying French soldiers on a mission in Vietnam, where he was killed when he stepped on a land mine. Whelan (Alfred Stieglitz: A Biography) points out that Capa showed sympathy for soldiers and civilians on both sides of every conflict, and the compassionate aspect of his work is underscored by the inclusion of sensitive pictures that have nothing to do with war, such as scenes of Chinese children playing in the snow and a U.S. medic treating a German soldier in 1943. This beautifully produced book is a fitting tribute to one of the great photographers of our time. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Capa ranks among the century's most important photographers, yet this book is the first complete retrospective of his work. All the elements of fine photographycontrol of tones, composition, gathering light, and the nonintrusive presence of the cameraare found in Capa's work. Moreover, the photographer seemed to enjoy a special link to those he photographed, a characteristic that makes so many of his prints memorable and understandable to viewers. This book speaks of Capa's empathy and respect for his subjects, from strangers in the shadows of war to dear friends sharing joy. Capa had his finger on the camera's shutter at the perfect moment to capture a reality as cruel as a Loyalist militiaman taking a deadly bullet in the Spanish Civil War or as spirited as a children's snowball fight. Including a brief foreword by Henri Cartier-Bresson and a remembrance by Capa's brother, Cornell, this volume demonstrates Capa's artistic achievement with the full range of his images and the moods they capture in crisp reproductions. Highly recommended as a significant addition to any library collection.David Bryant, New Canaan P.L., Ct.
