Cornell Capa has died in New York, aged 90. The brother of war photographer Robert Capa, he was a distinguished artist in his own right. He used the term ‘concerned photography’ to describe his work, which blurred the line between image and reality. This shot of Marilyn Monroe is a good example – though it appears to catch her off-guard, she was acting in a scene from The Misfits.
As part of the Magnum group, Capa covered a diverse range of subjects, from the Kennedy presidency to the hidden lives of disabled children. You can view his work here
