Gerda Pohorylle and Andre Friedmann met in Paris in the 1930s and together the two political emigres created the fictitious photographer Robert Capa under whose name they published and marketed their pictures. This beautifully printed book assesses the life and work of Taro who was tragically killed while covering the Spanish Civil War with Friedman (who kept the name Capa), and includes many images recently discovered from the so-called 'Mexican suitcase' containing negatives by Taro, Capa and David 'Chim' Seymour.
