Robert Capa is recognized for his extensive coverage of war and conflict during his relatively short photographic life, including the Spanish Civil War, the Normandy landings of World War II, the Japanese invasion of China, the Israeli War of Independence, and the French-Indochina War. Because of the limitations of color films and magazine printing technology, war was almost always depicted in black and white images. "Capa in Color" is a presentation of an especially unique aspect of Capa's work: his recently-rediscovered pictures in color. Images from the Atlantic Convoy of the Royal Air Force in Tunisia, to intimate images of Ernest Hemingway and his sons, as well as the depiction of Indochine culture alongside its conflict, Capa managed to impart a distinctive vision, both in his choice of subject matter and his vibrant imagery.
