Not Close Enough

Robert Capa & Gerta Taro

Format: Cinema/ CoPro International

Robert Capa is one of the most famous photographers oft he world. His picture of “the falling soldier” ‑ taken 1936 during the Spanish Civil War ‑ has become an icon of photography. The exiled native Hungarian was close friend to Gerda Taro who worked equally as a photographer and became the first woman killed as a journalist while reporting from war. Capa founded in 1947 the picture-agency MAGNUM which is still today the world’s leading agency for photography. Robert Capa died in 1954 at a job during the war in Indochina. Most of the pictures taken by Capa and Taro during the Spanish Civil War were thought to be lost by the capture of Paris by the German army. In 2008 they were found in an inconspicuous suitcase in Mexico.
