With 262 images from one of the most important and gifted photographers of the 20th century, this book spans the entire career of Robert Capa, from his first published photograph of Leon Trotsky taken in 1932, to his last shot moments before his death in Indochina in 1954. Renown for his remarkable documentation of conflict - the Spanish Civil War, the Japanese invasion of China, the Israeli War of Independence, and the French Indochina War - Capa recorded in unique detail the human drama, the raw and emotional manifestations of hardship and struggle. His peacetime images are also presented here, including American politicians, French factory workers and Israeli immigrants. Drawing on his complete oeuvre, this book not only presents hitherto unseen masterpieces but also restores some of Capa's best-known photographs in the context of the photo stories for which he took them.
