7 July - 27 September 2009. Already exhibited in New York, London and Milan, the MNAC brings together 150 photographs taken by Robert Capa during the many international conflicts he covered as a war correspondent during the 1930s and 40s. He is responsible for some of the most famous photographs of the Spanish Civil War, including 'Death of a Militiaman' which captures the moment a soldier falls fatally wounded. In 1954, during an assignment working for Life magazine in Indochina, he was killed by a landmine. This exhibition honours Capa's work and includes his letters which shed an insight into the enormous contribution he made to photojournalism, for which he paid the ultimate price.
