CAPA IN COLOR

Year Coverage: 
1940 to 1954
Description: 

Capa in Color presents Robert Capa’s color work for the first time. Capa regularly used color film from the 1940s until his death in 1954. Some of these photographs were published in magazines of the day, but the majority have never been printed, seen, or even studied.

Over the years, this aspect of Capa’s career has virtually been forgotten. With over 150 contemporary color prints by the famous photojournalist, Capa in Color presents this work as an integral part of his postwar career and fundamental in remaining relevant to magazines. Drawn entirely from ICP’s collection, including contextual publications and personal papers, the exhibition presents a fascinating new look at this master of black-and-white photography during his centennial year.
