The legendary war photographer Robert Capa carried into his personal life the same remarkable vitality that characterizes his pictures. Driven from his native Hungary by political oppression, he was first recognized for photographing the Spanish Civil War. In 1938 he was in China recording the Japanese invasion. During World War II he was in London, North Africa, and Italy, and then in France covering D-Day on Omaha Beach, the liberation of Paris, and the Battle of the Bulge. When the new nation of Israel was founded in 1948 he was there. In 1954 he was in Vietnam, taking photographs until the moment he was killed. Away from battle, Capa gather about him such famous people as Ernest Hemingway and his wife (the war correspondent Martha Gellhorn), Gary Cooper, Irwin Shaw, and Gene Kelly. Whelan shows Capa photographing the street life of Paris, crisscrossing America on assignment from Life, in Russia with John Steinbeck, in Italy with John Huston, on the Riviera with Picasso, and with Ingrid Bergman.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Kunst - Fotografie und Film, Note: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Kunstgeschichtliches Institut), Veranstaltung: Thematisches Proseminar, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Hausarbeit soll das Leben und Werk des bekannten Fotografen Robert Capa vorstellen. Capa war einer der populärsten Fotojournalisten des 20. Jahrhunderts, und außerdem Mitbegründer der legendären Fotoagentur Magnum. In dieser Arbeit wird vor allem seine Kriegsfotografie, welche das größte Feld in seinem Schaffen darstellt, näher beleuchtet. Als Quellen dienten mir hierzu seine Biografien „Die Wahrheit ist das beste Bild“ von Richard Whelan, „Robert Capa. Der Fotograf des Krieges“ von Alexander Kershaw und natürlich seine Autobiografie „Slightly out of focus“, in der Capa seine Erlebnisse im Zweiten Weltkrieg festgehalten hat. Aber auch weitere wichtige Werke, wie die Bildbände „Robert Capa. Die Sammlung“ herausgegeben von Richard Whelan und „Robert Capa. Photographien“ herausgegeben von seinem Bruder Cornell Capa und Richard Whelan, sowie „Zeitblende“ der Jubiläumsband zum 50jährigen Bestehen der Magnum Agentur, standen mir zur Verfügung. Nicht zuletzt war mir der kritische Essay „Das Leiden anderer betrachten“, der anerkannten Schriftstellerin und Kritikerin Susan Sontag, eine große Hilfe bei der Deutung und näheren Betrachtung des Capaschen Lebenswerkes. Ich werde, nach einem kurzen Abriss der Geschichte der Kriegsfotografie, das Leben und Werk Robert Capas näher betrachten und dabei auch einen Blick auf die Fotoagentur Magnum werfen. Abschließen werde ich mit einem kurzen Fazit über die Intention seiner Arbeit.

"Robert Capa: Photographs is the first true retrospective book of one of the century's greatest photographers. Drawing upon hundreds of previously unseen images, this collection reveals Capa as one of the great poets of the camera. In these photographs, we see through the eyes of a driven humanist who was also a documentarian of the highest caliber. While previous volumes on Capa have focused on his role as a war photographer, "Robert Capa: Photographs shows us the remarkable range of his work, which encompasses the sufferings as well as the tenderness, humor and wonder of his subjects. Robert Capa demonstrated not only a passionate commitment to improving the human condition, but also an unfailing eye for graphic impact. Although his photographs remain the definitive visual records of such momentous events as the siege of Madrid, the bombing of Hankou, and the Allied landings on D-day, many of his images have a timeless and universal quality that transcends the specifics of history. A Spanish soldier recoils at the impact of a bullet, the final instant of his life. In a scene of perfect joy, a group of Chinese children laugh at the sky as snow begins to fall. Four farm workers, hauling all the belongings they can manage, trudge grimly away from an apocalyptic backdrop of smoke and ruins: their war-devastated homes. Capa's images reveal his profound compassion and perceptiveness about our tenuous human state. As Cornell Capa (Robert's younger brother and the Founding Director Emeritus of the International Center of Photography) writes in his eloquent remembrance: "He managed to travel all over the world, and to communicate his experience and feelings through a universallanguage: photography." "Robert Capa: Photographs also includes a foreword by Capa's close friend Henri Cartier-Bresson, as well as an informative historical essay by Capa biographer Richard Whelan. At last, here is the book that reveals Robert Capa in a new light. The extraordinary collection of images in "Robert Capa: Photographs brings us--through the events of history--to the very heart of humanity.

A wonderfully rich and evocative biography of the great war photographer, Robert Capa, whose life was every bit as dramatic as the pictures he took.A Hungarian, Capa was driven from his country by political oppression and became the greatest war photographer of his generation with his work during the Spanish Civil War. His work during WWII made him a legend as he covered many of the significant moments of the war, crossing the Atlantic with the first convoys, enduring the London Blitz and following the Allies through North Africa, Italy and then the liberation of France. Founder of Magnum, he was one of the earliest casualties of what would become the Vietnam war, being killed in IndoChina in 1954. Friend of Hemingway, Gary Cooper, Gene Kelly, John Huston, lover of Ingrid Bergman, he is one of the great figures of the twentieth century. 'A tale rich with intrigue, love, lust, lies and betrayal...I loved this book' Janine di Giovanni 'Ambition, integrity and courage were intertwined in Capa, as Alex Kershaw persuades in this elegant biography ...a spellbinding portrait of his gypsy life.' Sunday Times 'Packed with good stories, and snappily written, Blood and Champagne is as full of life as the man it celebrates.' Observer 'Remarkably fine' Daily Telegraph

In 1942, a dashing young man who liked nothing so much as a heated game of poker, a good bottle of scotch, and the company of a pretty girl hopped a merchant ship to England. He was Robert Capa, the brilliant and daring photojournalist, and Collier’s magazine had put him on assignment to photograph the war raging in Europe. In these pages, Capa recounts his terrifying journey through the darkest battles of World War II and shares his memories of the men and women of the Allied forces who befriended, amused, and captivated him along the way. His photographs are masterpieces — John G. Morris, Magnum Photos’ first executive editor, called Capa “the century’s greatest battlefield photographer” — and his writing is by turns riotously funny and deeply moving. From Sicily to London, Normandy to Algiers, Capa experienced some of the most trying conditions imaginable, yet his compassion and wit shine on every page of this book. Charming and profound, Slightly Out of Focus is a marvelous memoir told in words and pictures by an extraordinary man.—Print Ed.
