Even in his lifetime, Robert Capa was described as the greatest war photographer in the world. An ironic achievement for a man who loathed war, no one better embodies the photographer as cultural soldier, and no work better encapsulates the violence and brutality of the twentieth century. This volume presents a rich selection of Capa’s work. Today, the wars of the twentieth century may have aged from wounds into scars, but Capa’s images remain as devastating as ever, reminding us that despite loss and destruction, humanity persists.
