Season 17, Episode 7 Robert Capa: In Love and War

First Aired: May 28, 2003

Recalling war photographer Robert Capa (1913-54), who was celebrated for his work during the Spanish Civil War and World War II. Goran Visnjic provides Capa's voice during this profile by filmmaker Anne Makepeace, which combines archival clips (and plenty of Capa stills, of course) with recollections of colleagues, friends, his brother Cornell and Steven Spielberg. Capa was the only news photographer with the first wave of U.S. troops at Omaha Beach on D-Day (later, a darkroom assistant spoiled most of the negatives of the shots he took that day), but he's perhaps best known for a photo of a Loyalist taken just as a bullet hits him during the Spanish civil war. Says Miguel Nunez, a veteran of that war: “He loses his life but maintains his dignity.”
