Robert Capa: legendary photographer

 The Big Issue in the North - UK 18 November 2019

October marked 100 years since the birth of legendary war photographer Robert Capa. His photographs of the D-Day landings have gone down as some of the most iconic pictures of combat ever taken, while his work during the Spanish civil war produced photographs that have spawned myths and legends of their own. Alasdair Soussi of The Big Issue in the North looks back on how Capa transformed war photography – and assesses the controversy surrounding one of his most famous shots. (1095 Words) - By Alasdair Soussi
