The award-winning photojournalist

Witness to armed conflict and atrocity

these devastating experiences

changed his motivation.

 

The conflicting emotions still haunt him.

 

An interview to mark the opening

of Shaped by War at the Imperial War Museum,

Mr. Riboud

followed

the independence

movements

across Algeria

and West Africa

in the 1960s

and was one

of few photographers

allowed to travel

in North and South Vietnam

between 1968 and 1969.

 

Another celebrated image,

made in the United States

in the same era,

shows a young woman

named Jan Rose Kasmir

bravely holding

a single daisy

before a row

of bayonet-wielding soldiers

at a Vietnam War protest

outside the Pentagon.

David Douglas Duncan        USA        1916-2018

 

 

After World War II,

he went to Palestine for Life

and covered fighting

between Arabs and Jews

in 1946,

before the creation

of the State of Israel.

 

(...)

 


Mr. Duncan covered

the Republican and Democratic

National Conventions

for NBC News in 1968.

 

He was just back

from Vietnam,

and what might

have been

a hiatus from combat

turned violent in Chicago,

where National Guardsmen

with rifles

and police officers

with nightsticks and tear gas

clashed with antiwar demonstrators

outside the convention hall

where Democrats were meeting.

 

His photographs

showed

helmeted troops

on Michigan Avenue,

protesters with gashed

and bleeding heads,

and a sobbing girl

who pleaded with him,

“Please, tell it like it was.”

 

(...)

 

He went to war

with only essential

equipment:

helmet, poncho,

spoon, toothbrush,

compass,

soap and backpack

containing two canteens,

an exposure meter,

film and two cameras.

 

He used a Rolleiflex

in World War II,

but preferred

a 35-millimeter.

 

He took two Leica IIIc

cameras into Korea,

and said they stood up well

in the rain and mud.

 

He often used

50-millimeter f/2

and 135-millimeter f/3.5

Nikkor lenses.

Robert Capa        HUN        1913-1954

 

 

On 3 December 1938

Picture Post introduced

'The Greatest War Photographer

in the World: Robert Capa'

with a spread of 26 photographs

taken during the Spanish Civil War.

 

But the 'greatest war photographer'

hated war.

 

Born Andre Friedmann

to Jewish parents

in Budapest in 1913,

he studied political science

at the Deutsche Hochschule für Politik

in Berlin.

 

Driven out of the country

by the threat of a Nazi regime,

he settled in Paris in 1933.

 

He was represented

by Alliance Photo

and met the journalist

and photographer

Gerda Taro.

 

Together,

they invented the 'famous'

American photographer

Robert Capa

and began to sell his prints

under that name.

 

He met Pablo Picasso

and Ernest Hemingway,

and formed friendships

with fellow photographers

David 'Chim' Seymour

and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
 

 

From 1936 onwards,

Capa's coverage

of the Spanish Civil War

appeared regularly.

 

His picture

of a Loyalist soldier

who had just been

fatally wounded

earned him

his international reputation

and became

a powerful symbol of war.

 

After his companion,

Gerda Taro,

was killed in Spain,

Capa travelled to China in 1938

and emigrated to New York

a year later.

 

As a correspondent

in Europe,

he photographed

the Second World War,

covering the landing

of American troops

on Omaha beach on D-Day,

the liberation of Paris

and the Battle of the Bulge.

 

In 1947

Capa founded

Magnum Photos

with Henri Cartier-Bresson,

David Seymour,

George Rodger

and William Vandivert.

 

On 25 May 1954

he was photographing for Life

in Thai-Binh, Indochina,

when he stepped on a landmine

and was killed.

 

The French army awarded him

the Croix de Guerre with Palm

post-humously.

 

The Robert Capa

Gold Medal Award

was established in 1955

to reward exceptional

professional merit.

Civil War (1861-1865) photographers        USA

 

Mathew B. Brady        1823?-1896

 

Alexander Gardner        1821-1882

 

 

In 1862,

Brady shocked America

by displaying his photographs

of battlefield corpses

from Antietam,

posting a sign on the door

of his New York gallery

that read,

"The Dead of Antietam."

 

This exhibition

marked the first time

most people witnessed

the carnage of war.

 

The New York Times

said that Brady had brought

"home to us the terrible reality

and earnestness of war."
