Cornell Capa Photographs
A collection of intelligent, compassionate, formally striking images from the legendary photographer Cornell Capa
"Single photographs are not what I do best. My most effective work is groups of photographs which hang together and tell stories"
- Cornell Capa
When people refer to Cornell Capa they often think of him as the founder and director of the International Center of Photography, New York, and as the brother of Robert Capa, rather than as a photographer.
This cloth-bound book, filled with 27 of his most compassionate, striking images, promises to bring to light his work as a photographer.
He once told Camera magazine, “Single photographs are not what I do best. My most effective work is groups of photographs which hang together and tell stories.” The pictures included here sum up and transcend those stories while resonating with a universal human experience, they mark him as what he referred to as”a concerned photographer”.
