Went with Robert Capa to cover the Spanish Civil War - where she was sideswiped by a tank during the battle of Brunete and killed. She was seen as a heroine of the anti-Fascists and her funeral in Paris (Aug 1, 1937) drew thousands including the French writer Louis Aragon and the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Her memorial at Père-Lachaise was designed by the sculptor Alberto Giacometti.
A collection of 206 of her prints was donated by Cornell Capa to the International Center of Photography. An exhibition at the International Center for Photography, New York, USA (September 26, 2007 - January 6, 2008) examined the significance of her work as an early woman battlefield photographer.
