Robert Capa – the pseudonym adopted by the Hungarian Endre Friedman – is one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, and perhaps of all time. A unique, tenacious, brave, passionate and sensitive war photographer and one of the fathers of photojournalism. While not a soldier, Capa lived most of his life on the battlefield, near the scene, near the pain, to document the facts, showing what he considered truly important, in a way that nobody else could because nobody else was close enough! "IF YOUR PICTURES AREN’T GOOD ENOUGH, YOU AREN’T CLOSE ENOUGH” The photographics book "Robert Capa In Italy" presents a selection of 78 beautiful black-and-white photos, which tell the story of the landing of the Allies in Italy on its 70th anniversary. Portraits of young soldiers moving from one place to another, briefly resting or struggling with the pain of the wounds, as well as the peoples of small Sicilian villages, crushed by the war. The meeting between statuesque U.S. soldiers and old farmers. The welcome given to the Allies by liberated cities and restarting daily life among the ruins of war. The war of the peasants and small villages, the same all around the world. Soldiers and civilians, victims of the same massacre. Robert Capa’s lens focused in on them all, with the same solidarity, capturing the fear, the waiting, the moment before the shooting, the ruins, the hope. In collaboration with BUDAPEST NATIONAL MUSEUM
