Robert Capa is synonymous with black-and-white documentation of conflict, from the Spanish Civil War to World War Two. Also largely monochrome were the major Capa collections that followed: studies of the Soviet Union and Israel. But the photographer did make extensive use of color, which gradually seeped into his work from 1941 right up until the end of his life. His glossy coverage of high-society European ski resorts are a notable departure from black-and-white, even if the backdrop to all the colour-saturated human activity is the most monochrome of natural landscapes.
