Gerda Taro

Don't know why I it took me a year to discover a link to this Gerda Tara show, but I was totally wowed by the work of this photographer I knew very little about. She was Robert Capa's collaborator/girlfriend and they worked together for only two years before she was killed in the Spanish Civil War just shy of her 27th birthday.

I just finished reading Blood and Champagne (about Capa) and was so interested in the part about her. Thanks for posting this link!
