Product description

Review

"[A] lively, richly illustrated book." (Lorna Scott Fox Times Literary Supplement)

"What sets this biography apart is the way in which it unpicks Taro and Capa's creative and romantic relationship, showing, in the process, how integral she was to his development… With two films about Capa and Taro's relationship in the offing, it may be an opportune time to acquaint oneself with this well-researched, and meticulously recreated, story of their overlapping lives before the myth takes over." (Sean O’Hagan Observer)

"What makes the book come alive, perhaps inevitably, are the photographs of [Taro] and Capa... They are a remarkable testimonial to two young photographers whose extraordinary talent it was to convey war at its most immediate, intimate and brutal." (Caroline Moorehead Literary Review)

"Rogoyska does some good detective work and the result is an engaging, visually stimulating read." (Amateur Photographer)

"Jane Rogoyska charts the course of Gerda Taro’s life, revealing much new material, illustrated by some truly great photography, some of which has never been seen" (Black and White Photography)

Book Description

A re-examination of the woman who created the legend of Robert Capa, the world’s first female photojournalist to die in combat, Gerda Taro.
