“…The idea that any photography can’t be personal is madness! … I see something; it goes through my eye, brain, heart, guts; I choose the subject. What could be more personal than that?”

— Cornell Capa

A post over on the Magnum blog about the recent death of Magnum photographer Cornell Capa. Cornell was perhaps less known than his more famous brother Photographer Robert Capa, but he did some amazing work as a photojournalist. He also founded the International Center of Photography.

You can check out some of Cornell Capa’s work over at Magnum here. His New York Times obituary is here.

Thanks, Steve!
