"[Whelan] tries to put the ''real'' Capa in sharp focus for the first time. Capa once said, ''If your pictures aren''t good enough, you aren''t close enough.'' Whelan shows that this position came naturally to a man who hungered for -- and attracted -- close-up contact throughout his life." -- Newsweek .Reseña del editor:
"[Whelan] tries to put the 'real' Capa in sharp focus for the first time. Capa once said, 'If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough.' Whelan shows that this position came naturally to a man who hungered for - and attracted - close-up contact throughout his life." - "Newsweek". 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 Hemingwa 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. Richard Whelan edited with Cornell Capa Robert Capa Photographs. Whelan studied art history at Yale University and has written extensively about art and photography. His books include "Drawing the Line: Volume 1: The Korean War, 1950-1953".
