Robert Capa (Photo Poche #36)

4.07  ·  Rating Details  ·  43 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
Through his photographs we see the suffering, confusion, boredom and courage of the soldiers and civilians affected by the five wars that he covered. Yet he was more than a war photographer: Capa's portraits of politicians and artists are equally memorable. A participant, not an observer, Capa lived his life on the edge and died in action, killed by a landmine in Vietnam.
Paperback, 144 pages
Published November 2004 by Thames & Hudson (first published 1974)

Ho deciso di acquistare questo libro per approfondire la figura di Capa e anche per avere una maggiore conoscenza della sua opera.
L'opera è molto ben scritta e documentata ottimamente, tra l'altro attinge a testimonianze e amici che riescono a gettare luce anche sugli aspetti più controversi del suo carattere. Ne emerge il profilo di un animo inquieto, segnato dalle tante sofferenze vissute nell'infanzia e nella prima giovinezza, che riesce a ritrovare un po' di pace solo nel cuore dell'azione.

It's the war photographer who had been in many battles holding his camera and sensation. A book is a small nice collection of Capa's work preceded by his biography.
