Photo: Gerda Taro during the battle of Brunete in 1936.
In 1933, the photographer then known as Andre Friedman met Polish photographer Gerda Taro in Paris. They created the identity of American photographer "Robert Capa," and sold Friedman's work under that name. The newly-created Capa travelled to Madrid to cover the Spanish Civil war in 1935, and took this photograph of Taro during the battle of Brunete in 1936. Taro was killed in Madrid on July 25, 1937.
