Reviews

Eyes of the World captures an extraordinary and tragic moment in time. Robert Capa and Gerda Taro were young, idealistic, in love, and two of the best photographers who ever lived. This book does a great service for readers of all ages by evoking that moment telling the story of this couple so well. Adam Hochchild, author of Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939

A fascinating look at the evolution of photojournalism.... Readers not only get a strong sense of who these photographers were as people, they will understand what made their pictures so special. Thoroughly researched and cited, the text offers a unique perspective. Booklist, starred review
