Robert Capa. Retrospective


Del 28 de Junho al 3 de Novembro

The Robert Capa retrospective features around 100 photos, on display at the Tobacco Museum.

To talk about Robert Capa (the pseudonym of Endre Ernő Friedmann, Budapest 1913—Vietnam 1954) is to talk about the quintessential icon of war photojournalism and one of the great names in 20th-century photography; a man who is a blend of myth, reality and legend.

The Tobacco Museum is now providing the chance to get an up-close look at his work with a retrospective that will be on display until early November this year.

Featuring images that form part of the history of photography, from the famous series he did on the Spanish Civil War as well as the Sino-Japanese War (1938) and Second World War, it also includes photos of the victims and survivors of these conflicts, whose suffering he sought to document.

In 1947, Capa founded the agency Magnum Photos – still a benchmark in the photography world today – together with the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, among others.

A lesser-known side of Capa are the portraits of his circle of friends, a circle that included Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, John Huston and Truman Capote, to name just a few, who are all also featured in this exhibition.

Place and dates: Tobacco Museum, until 3 November 2019. Free admission.

Organisation: Tobacco Museum and Magnum Photo.
