Eyes of the World: Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and the Invention of Modern Photojournalism

Read this book in Granite’s OverDrive Digital Library

Written by Marc Aronson & Marina Budhos

This is a fascinating look at the beginning of photojournalism during WWII as captured through the lens of Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. These two young Jewish refugees set out to document and share with the world in photos what was really happening during the war. Each page of this beautifully written book includes their daring and insightful pictures. Many say a picture is worth a thousand words; the stories the photos in this book share are emotional and moving. This work is a great primary source for any collection on the Spanish Civil War, “the prelude” to WWII, and WWII.
