The Fine Arts Circle offers an exhibition of photographs taken by the outstanding Hungarian photojournalist (nationalised as a North American citizen), Robert Capa, in which an exceptional aspect of the photojournalist and correspondent’s career is presented: his use of colour photography and how he masterfully integrated it into his work as a graphic reporter in the middle of the 20th century.
The exhibition is made up of around 150 colour images (that have never been printed or exhibited in Spain before), tearsheets of the publications and some personal documents.
Capa, pseudonym of Endre Ernő Friedmann (Budapest, 1913 – Thai Binh, Vietnam, 1954), is one of the most outstanding photojournalists of all times. He consolidated his reputation with his photographs of the Spanish Civil War, where he was present on all of the combat fronts. Throughout his career as a reporter, he published images of the brutality of the contents that changed the perception and standards of war photography.
Although he is essentially known for his black and white photographs, he began working regularly with colour in 1941 (even in war images, although they were rarely published due to the speed with which they needed to be published) and later on, in his post-war photographs for magazines like Holiday (USA), Ladies’ Home Journal (USA), Illustrated (UK) and Epoca (Italy).
