A true immersion in the huge image production of the great photographer, filmmaker and war reporter Robert Capa, this retrospective book features both iconic and previously unpublished photographs from Golda Darty’s private collection and the Magnum Photos archives. The book examines Capa’s approach: how were his images distributed and published, and what do they tell us about the photographer’s life and influence on modern photojournalism?

Chronologically and thematically organized and introduced by short text by Michel Lefebvre (book editor), the series presented in the book alternate between Capa’s shots (150 in all) and archival documents. Six major chapters trace and contextualize his career: from the Spanish Civil War to the Sino-Japanese conflict, from Russia to World War II with the Normandy landings.

Icônes explores the artist’s working methods and presents clues found on the back of Capa’s prints.e di Capa. This rich archival material (original prints, notes and excerpts from magazines and books) sheds light on the creation and dissemination of photographs that have become an integral part of History.
