A true war epic!

Barbican Art Gallery reflects on conflict and its visual representation in a series of interrelated exhibitions -

This Is War! Robert Capa at work;
Gerda Taro: A Retrospective and
On the Subject of War.

This Is War! Robert Capa at work
One of the leading photographers of the 20th century, Capa defined how modern warfare was photographed. This exhibition includes over 150 images, some never-before-seen photographs and newly discovered documents.

Gerda Taro: A Retrospective
Gerda Taro spent her brief but dramatic career photographing the Spanish Civil War alongside Robert Capa. Taro´s unflinching images of the casualties of war are a remarkable contribution to the tradition of war photography.
