The Guardian on Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, partners in war photography  
Thursday, May 17, 2012 | by Eamon Hickey
Prompted by the British publication of a novel about Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, The Guardian has posted an interesting essay about the two legendary photographers and their relationship. 

The Hungarian Capa and the German-Jewish Taro, both essentially refugees from fascism, met in Paris in 1934. They became romantically involved and also began photographing the Spanish Civil War, "reinventing the form" of war photography, says  The Guardian. Taro was killed in that war in 1937. Capa would go on to become perhaps the most prominent war photographer of the 20th century, and he, in turn, was killed while covering the war in Indochina in 1954. 

The novel that prompted the article is called  Waiting for Robert Capa by Spanish novelist Susana Fortes, first published in 2009. The director Michael Mann has purchased the film rights.
