Eyes of the World: Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and the Invention of Modern Photojournalism

by Aronson, Marc (Author), Budhos, Marina (Author)

ISBN: 9780805098358

Robert Capa and Gerda Taro were young Jewish refugees, idealistic and in love. As photographers, they set off to capture their generation's most important struggle—the fight against Fascism. Among the first to depict modern warfare, Capa and Taro took powerful photographs of the Spanish Civil War that went straight from the devastation to news magazines. In so doing, they helped give birth to the idea of "bearing witness" through technology to bring home tragedies from across the world. Packed with dramatic photos, posters, and maps, this compelling book captures the fascinating story of how photojournalism began.
