Robert Capa’s most productive years (and his whiskey-and-cigarettes lifestyle) are chronicled in this historically rich volume. Hundreds of pictures show Capa’s versatility, from gutsy wartime shots to fashion images for Photo Monde. The book debunks and clarifies many Capa myths and facts, including a moving account of Capa’s early collaboration with his companion, photographer Gerda Taro, who was killed covering the Spanish Civil War in 1937. Its final Capa image, of French soldiers walking through a rice paddy in Indochina in 1954, was made moments before the great photojournalist was killed by a land mine, still holding his Contax SLR.
