The Mexican Suitcase
Lost negatives by Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and David Seymour "Chim"... The Mexican Suitcase by Trisha Ziff at Zone Zero. "...I returned from a short trip to New York in January 2007 with a project to find a Ben Tarver in Mexico City. He had inherited photographic negatives taken by Robert Capa during the Spanish Civil War. I was not the first person to be asked to help retrieve them, but for many reasons 12 years had passed since Ben Tarver had first reached out to Professor Green of Queens College an expert in the Spanish Civil War. It was a result of this brief correspondence initiated by Tarver that Cornell Capa became aware of the lost material of his brother."
