The Mexican Suitcase

A valuable historical treasure has been found recently and is now on display in New York's International Center of Photography.

Gerda Taro, pictured above, was killed just before her 27th birthday while photographing the Spanish Civil War. Her boyfriend, Robert Capa, photographed the iconic picture of the falling soldier at top.

Go see.

The SCW is remembered as the inspiration for some of the greatest world art in recent time.


  1. Nice post. I found the photos fascinating . . .

  2. Since you stopped by, a good time to ask you, since you're there, if there is still talk about the SCW?



    And in expansion of my article, the SCW is of course remembered for things other than great art.
