Robert Capa was a Hungarian war photographer, photo journalist and a co-founder of the legendary Magnum Photos agency. You can also check out his full biography here.
Unlike most of Capa’s images which document the war in action and its consequences, this photograph is full of life. It was taken in winter of 1938 during Sino-Japanese war. This is a real moment of joy and you can feel it by looking at these kids who are fighting their own snowball war. I love the paradox and technically this is a lovely B&W image with contrasts of snow and dark and black children coats.
