Photos from John Steinbeck and Robert Capa’s 1940’s Georgia Trip

Robert Capa was a Hungarian combat photographer and photojournalist who covered five wars: the Spanish Civil War, the second Sino-Japanese War, the Western front of WWII, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and the first Indochina War.

In 1947 Capa traveled to the Soviet Union with his friend, the American writer John Steinbeck. He took photos in Moscow, Kiev, Tbilisi, Batumi, and among the ruins of Stalingrad. Steinbeck’s account of their journey, A Russian Journal, (1948) was illustrated with Capa’s photos.
