By the time Robert Capa was torn apart by a mine 1954, he had released the shutter on his camera over 70,000 times. Capa’s images ignited and illustrated the peace movement; his D-day pictures provide the only authentic testimony to events at Omaha Beach. In her film portrait, Anne Makepeace remains true to Capa’s motto »If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough«. With great care, she tells the story – itself the stuff of Hollywood films – of the Hungarian refugee Andre Friedmann who reinvented himself as the American Robert Capa to help sell his pictures. IN LOVE AND WAR includes photos not previously on public view from the archive’s of Robert’s brother Cornell Capa and the Magnum and IPC agencies.
