What to expect

Explore the works of Robert Capa, the photojournalist, at an exhibition in Budapest.

Robert Capa (Endre Friedmann, October 22, 1913 – May 25, 1954) is considered the unique visual chronicler of several 20th-century wars (the Spanish Civil War, the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Second World War, the First Arab-Israeli War, and the First Indochina War) both in the world and the Hungarian history of photography.

As it was characteristic of him, he created his photographs depicting soldiers and partisans, ordinary moments and battles, from the perspective of the participant-observer, with unlimited empathy. He was there with them, really close, and this is how his images were born. In his own famous words: If your photographs aren’t good enough, you're not close enough.
