Capa Retrospective in London
Robert Capa is best known for his shots of the Spanish Civil War and the D-Day landings but in between he visited China in 1938 and took some impressive photos too. His most famous shots were of the battle of Taierchwang, the only significant Chinese victory of the entire war.
Currently the Barbican in London is running an exhibition of his work - This Is War! Robert Capa at Work – it’s on till the end of January 2009. Click here for details of the exhibition
If you can’t get to London the Guardian has a video with the author Geoff Dyer talking about both Capa’s work and the Barbican exhibition – click here.
