Robert Capa’s “lost negatives” resurface 50 years later

A whole lot of film negatives from Robert Capa (wiki) have resurfaced in New York. Capa himself thought these photos were lost during wartime in Europe while they had been kept in Mexico. They are now in New York in the International Center of Photography founded by Robert Capa’s brother.

Besides a great discovery of some work from Capa and its (future) Magnum colleagues (Gerda Taro and David Seymour), this (re)discovery may shed some light on the shooting circumstances of Capa’s most famous image: “The Falling Soldier”.

Read the entire story in the New York Times.

View some of Capa’s Images on Magnum website.
