Gerda Taro - Hardcover
Gerda Taro (1910–1937) was the first woman photojournalist to photograph in the heat of battle. Taro was the lover and photographic partner of famed photojournalist Robert Capa and, as his manager, is often credited for launching Capa’s career. She and Capa covered much of the Spanish Civil War side by side. Taro was killed in July 1937, while photographing a crucial battle near Madrid. ICP holds what is by far the world’s largest collection of Taro’s work, including approximately 200 prints as well as original negatives. Organized chronologically, this exhibition will include vintage and modern prints, and magazine layouts using Taro’s work. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue, the first major collection of Taro’s work ever published.
