The Mexican Suitcase - Spanish Civil War photos
For anyone interested in photography, there is currently a fascinating display of Spanish Civil War photographs on display at the International Center of Photography in New york, now through January 9. The photos, taken by Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and David Seymour between 1936-1939 throughout Spain, represent some of the first and best images of the at-that-time New wartime photography. After the war, some 4,500 negatives were supposed to be shipped in boxes to the US, but only made it recently. When the exhibit finishes, the photographs will be sent to a museum in Barcelona.
