Keeper Of The Flame, Cornell Capa 1918-2008

Founder of the ICP, international Center For Photography, and legacy keeper of his brother's photography, Robert Capa, died last Friday at his NYC home. His dedication to photojournalism was rarely matched by anyone. Cornell's was often conflicted by "concerned photography", a term he coined that referred to his personal and emotional engagement he often had for his subject. The end results gave Cornell a glimpse into his subjects that was seldom found by others.
