Robert Capa: The Paris Years 1933-54 offers a glimpse into the life of revered photojournalist. Focusing on the story of his Paris studio, and organised chronologically, the book explores his relationship with notable photographers, friends and loved ones, as well as the environment in which his career developed. Robert Capa: The Paris Years 1933-64 interjects new insight into this fascinating and talented man through recently surfaced documents and belongings, material created in or originating from his Paris Studio. These various artifacts have surfaced over the past 30 years and include notebooks, papers and developed photos. Most notably, nearly 70 years after it disappeared, his so-called Mexican Suitcase, that re-surfaced at the International Centre of Photography in New York in December 2007. The suitcase contained Capa's Spanish Civil War negatives, which had vanished from his studio at the start of WWII. These newly found treasures offer fresh insight into the man and the images. Moreover, this illustrated biography delves into his Paris life and how this environment affected his photography and personal experiences.
