His lifework, consisting of 70,000 negative frames, constitutes an unparalleled documentation of a crucial 22-year period (1932-1954) encompassing some of the most catastrophic and dramatic events of the 20th century. This volume presents a definitive selection of Capas work. The collection of 937 photographs was chosen by Capas brother, Cornell Capa, and his biographer, Richard Whelan, who re-examined all of Capas contact sheets to compile this master set of images.
