One of the most notable photojournalists from our times, Robert Capa, originally from Budapest and naturalized as a US citizen in 1946, was deemed ‘The Greatest War Photographer in the World’ by Picture Post in a late 1938 publication of his Spanish Civil War photos. 

This Autumn the photographer is at the spotlight in a new exhibition at Jeu de Paume - Capa in Color - gives you the chance to see 150 contemporary color prints by Capa as well as personal papers and tearsheets from the magazines where his pictures originally appeared. 

Capa in Color runs from 21st of November until 29th of May 2016 in Jeu de Paume in Paris.
