Review:

"No other photojournalist has extracted more visceral images from war and its consequences, images that even after 60 years still pack a punch."--"Philadelphia Inquirer

From the Back Cover:

"Heart of Spain: Robert Capa's Photographs of the Spanish Civil War"
From the Collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia
Introductory statements by Esperanza Aguirre Gil de Biedma, Jose Guirao Cabrera, and Cornell Capa
Essays by Juan P. Fusi Aizpurua, Richard Whelan, and Catherine Coleman
Capa's pictures were made in his brain-- the camera only completed them. You can no more mistake his work than you can the canvas of a fine painter. Capa knew what to look for and what to do with it when he found it. He knew, for example, that you cannot photograph war because it is largely an emotion. But he did photograph that emotion by shooting beside it. He could show the horror of a whole people in the face of a child. His camera caught and held emotion.--John Steinbeck
Robert Capa's images of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) define a moment of great historic and cultural significance, and are seminal to the development of his career as a photographer. These photographs were Capa's first major body of work, and gained him recognition as one of the greatest photojournalists of our time. "Heart of Spain" is devoted entirely to the finest collection of these photographs. This volume also features many images never before published, including contact sheets by Capa and his companion Gerda Taro, recently rediscovered in his long-lost notebooks.
