Robert Capa 100. "Hi!

Robert Capa 100

Jinx" was a national program on NBC radio that was created in 1946 by Jinx Falkenburg and Tex McCrary. The husband and wife team were pioneers of what became to be called the talk show format. They eventually had two radio programs, a five-day-a week television program and a syndicated column in the New York Herald Tribune. Falkenburg was a model and had been photographed by Capa in December 1940 following one of her performances in Al Jolson’s musical Hold On to Your Hat. McCrary was a journalist and as an Army Air Corps colonel had led the first journalists into the ruins of Hiroshima.

Previous attempts to locate this in national radio archives were unsuccessful. This recording is the only known recording of Robert Capa. Crimean War Photographs by Roger Fenton, 1855. Roger Fenton, The valley of the shadow of death.

biography - American photographer

—died January 14, 1882, Staten Island, New York), American photographer best known for his Civil War subjects and his landscapes of the American West. O’Sullivan was an apprentice at Mathew Brady’s daguerreotype studio in New York City at the time the Civil War broke out. During the Civil War he photographed on many fronts as part of the team sent out by Brady and later as a photographer for Alexander Gardner, who published O’Sullivan’s photographs as part of his Photographic Sketch Book of the Civil War (1866). Like Gardner, O’Sullivan left Brady’s employ over the issue of receiving proper credit for his work. In works such as A Harvest of Death (1863), which shows the Confederate dead at Gettysburg, O’Sullivan moved beyond traditional war images, which usually portrayed armies at rest, to capture instead the grim and gruesome realities of armed warfare.

The Magnificent Eleven: The D-Day Photographs of Robert Capa

I drew the blackout curtain and saw that it was just another dull, gray day, colder than an English spring had any right to be. The streets were empty, and I was alone in the flat I shared with Frank Scherschel on Upper Wimpole Street in London's West End. He had departed — vanished, actually, without saying a word — several days earlier for his battle station, a camouflaged airfield from which he would fly reconnaissance over the English Channel to photograph the largest armada ever assembled.

My job was to stay behind, to edit those and other photos for LIFE as picture editor of the London bureau. I dressed as usual in olive drab, turned on the radio, made tea and read the papers, which of course had nothing to report. "Under command of General Eisenhower, Allied naval forces, supported by strong Allied air forces, began landing Allied armies this morning on the northern coast of France.

Biographie · Association de préfiguration de la Fondation Patrick Chauvel

Fils de Jean-François Chauvel et d’Antonia Luciani. Petit-fils de Jean Chauvel, ambassadeur de France. Passionné par les récits de son père, de son oncle Pierre Schoendoerffer et de leurs amis Joseph Kessel, Lucien Bodard et Gilles Caron, il décide, à17 ans, de tenter lui aussi l’aventure du grand reportage. Quelques semaines avant la Guerre des Six jours, il s’engage comme volontaire et part travailler dans un Kibboutz en Israël. À peine arrivé au Kibboutz Yagur dans le nord de la Galilée, il apprend que la guerre a éclaté dans le pays. De retour à Paris après cette guerre éclair, il découvrira que la plupart des photos sont ratées mais que son intérêt pour le journalisme n’est pas qu’un atavisme familial.

Un stage au service photo de France-Soir lui permet d’améliorer ses connaissances de la photographie et du journalisme. Il décide de repartir en reportage et choisit le Vietnam. En 1970, il entre à l’agence Sipa. En décembre 1995 il est en Tchétchénie.
