In Paris in 1934, a young and beautiful Jewish émigrée, Gerda Pohorylles, met a Hungarian political exile, André Friedmann. They reinvented themselves as the photographers Gerda Taro and Robert Capa - and he would become the most important photojournalist of his generation.

When Gerda was killed in the Spanish Civil war at the age of twenty-six, Robert Capa was her most notable mourner - his grief was beyond control. Her funeral drew crowds of thousands and she became a hero of the political left. Despite the legend that was built around her, she subsequently became a mere footnote in Capa´s story. Seventy years after her death a long-lost suitcase was discovered in Mexico, containing thousands of negatives by Capa and Taro. Most astonishingly of all, the ´Mexican suitcase´ showed that photographs that had been attributed previously to Capa were, in fact, the work of Taro.

Jane Rogoyska´s book will trace Taro´s life and reveal the depth of her relationship with Capa. Charismatic and extraordinary, they epitomised one of the most tumultuous periods of the century.
