In an almost novelistic fashion, the picturespresented chronologicallytell 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 Capasthe raconteur of high society and the fearless witness to warare 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.”
