An unparalleled war photographer of the 20th century, Robert Capa chronicled the Spanish Civil War and cemented the visuals of WWII into the collective memory with his visceral images of the D-Day landings on Omaha Beach. His most famous photograph, Death of a Loyalist Militiaman (1936), depicts a Spanish soldier on the Córdoba front in mid-collapse from a fatal gunshot. During peaceful interludes, Capa produced portraits of leading cultural figures, including Pablo Picasso and John Steinbeck. A co-founder of Magnum Photos along with Henri Cartier-Bresson and others, Capa died when he stepped on a landmine while on assignment for Time-Life in French Indochina. He would inspire future generations of war photographers with his rule, “if your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
