Together with her partner, the Hungarian Endre Friedmann, Gerda Taro was one half of the alias Robert Capa, widely considered to be the twentieth century’s greatest war and political photographer. Taro was killed while documenting the Spanish Civil War and tragically became the first female photojournalist to be killed on a battlefield.

An extraordinary woman in extraordinary times Gerda Taro was a German-Jewish anti-fascist activist, artist and innovator. Her story is at the heart of this kaleidoscopic, biographical novel but another of its main characters is the era itself, the 1930s, with economic depression, the rise of Nazism, ideological warfare and the ascendency of photography as the age’s quintessential art form.
