About the book
Robert Capa, the most celebrated photojournalist of the 20th century and a founder of Magnum Photos, used Paris as a global platform for his photog­raphy throughout his career. Robert Capa: The Paris Years 1933–1954 tells Capa’s story by focusing on his Paris studio.
Recently many artifacts have surfaced, including the so-called “Mexican suitcase,” which contained Capa’s Spanish civil war negatives. These newly discovered documents, which were either created in or found in his Paris studio, are featured in the book.
With original textual analysis and both rare and renowned images, Robert Capa offers a newly informed, fresh look into the life of this revered photographer.

Praise for Robert Capa:
"Historians and photographers alike will be rewarded by the authors' excellent blend of narration and academic analysis, coupled with a generous helping of groundbreaking photos, many of which have never been published before." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
