Gerda Taro (1910–1937)


In her brief but dramatic career, Gerda Taro made some of the most striking photographs to come from the front lines of the Spanish Civil War. After her death, many of her prints and negatives remained with her lover and artistic collaborator Robert Capa. In 2002, Cornell Capa donated all of Taro's prints (almost 300) to ICP, establishing the largest holding of her work anywhere. All of Taro's negatives will be added to the collection as part of Cornell Capa's bequest.
