This is one of Robert Capa’s last pictures before he stepped on a lethal landmine in 1954 and one of his strongest war photographs. The inaction of the soldiers, all staring idly in different directions, on one side of the road and the adult and child walking with their animals down the other side of the road suggest the ambiguity the French military presence in Indochina and of Capa’s own engagement with what would eventually become the Vietnam War. Tragically this was not a war he dedicated himself to fighting by taking photographs for the international press, like the Spanish Civil War or World War II, or was he even interested in the conflict. This was supposed to be a short, well-paid assignment to cover for a @LIFE photographer who had to leave for several weeks. It was one of the only photographs that he shot in color that was later published in black and white after his death. He often photographed the same scene in both black and white and in color film, but the juxtaposition between the French soldiers and their military motorcycles and the Vietnamese peasants with their geese had no correlation in black and white. 📷 [On the road from Namdinh to Thaibinh, Indochina (present-day Vietnam)], May 1954 #ICPCollections

In celebration of the 104th anniversary of the birth of Robert Capa, here’s a photograph representing a lesser-known aspect of his career. This photo shows two boys at the Rosh Hashanah service at the Fraenkelufer Synagogue in Berlin September 1945. It was the first Jewish service held there since 1938. Capa was in Berlin on assignment for @LIFE, his last before he moved to Hollywood for almost a year. His photographs of the service were published in the October 8, 1945 issue about the American soldiers helping with the Jewish New Year services. This image was not printed in the magazine, which focused on the American soldiers, so it was not until later that the story of the two boys, Fred and Henry Taucher, 11 and 13 at the time, was revealed. Orphaned just days before the end of the war in May, they had spent the war hiding in Berlin with their mother. In 1946 they sailed to New York and were adopted by cousins in Joplin, Missouri. Henry Taucher recently visited the synagogue in Berlin. Despite the fact that Capa’s life (1913-1954) was defined by anti-semitism, this is the only story outside of Israel of a Jewish subject. #ICPCollections 📷 [Boys reading during the first Rosh Hashanah service to be held in any of the city's synagogues since 1938, Fraenkelufer Synagogue, Berlin], September 7, 1938

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Marc Riboud's classic capture. Riboud recalled, "I was taking photographs like mad, running out of film as night fell. The very last photo was the best. Framed in my viewfinder was the symbol of that America youth: a flower held before a row of Bayonets.”

Weegee and his trusty Speed Graphic camera go to police headquarters. "He looked like a stubborn surly, snarling animal," Weegee noted. "He stumbled and sagged over to one side, like a drunk." #WeegeeWednesday 📷💥
