Gerda Taro Inventing Robert Capa
Sunday, 2 March 2014

Pioneering photographer Gerda Taro died in combat in the Spanish Civil war, aged 26. She did not live to see her partner Robert Capa become the world’s most celebrated photojournalist. Seventy years after her death a suitcase was found containing thousands of negatives, revealing that photographs that had been attributed to Capa were in fact hers. Writer and filmmaker Jane Rogoyska explores the short brilliant life of Gerda Taro and her relationship with Capa.
