Slightly Out of Focus is the memoir of war photographer Robert Capa (1913-1954) from 1942 to 1945 on his work for Collier’s and Life magazines during World War II. He writes of his work in London, Algiers, Tunis, Sicily, and Naples in 1943; London, Normandy, Cherbourg, and Paris in 1944; and Germany in 1945.

With simple and direct language, Capa writes of his relationship with Ernest Hemingway, soldiers, nurses, and other war photographers. Most poignant are the excerpts about Omaha Beach during the D-Day landings. Much of the book – and its focus – is the selection of Robert Capa’s black-and-white photographs. Capa has been called ‘the century’s greatest battlefied photographer’ so his writing is secondary, but just as interesting. Although anyone who is a Robert Capa fan has probably seen most of the photographs before, having the background behind the photographs makes them more fascinating. The saying, ‘behind every photogragh is a story’ is true in this case, making Capa a delight to read.

i saved this book to read on the plane, since it's pretty slim. it's praised more for the famous pictures, i think, than the text. i liked it a lot. it's the story of a really interesting time and place, and he doesn't want to let the reader down by making anything sound boring. some passages are dated or awkward, but mostly he reminds me of a character in an i.b. singer book: an adventurer and also a bit of a [...].
he talks about the fog of war: he dared not ask for help from the soldiers he was with, because they couldn't see him in the dark or in the smoke, and with his heavy accent they were bound to mistake him for the enemy.
this memoir covers a pretty finite period of time in a very short life. (capa had a love affair with ingrid bergman, and this was the inspiration for the film 'rear window.') he started out as a journalist, and he's a good writer and story-teller as i said. you probably won't want to put the book down, but when you're finished you'll hold onto it for the sake of the photographs. i don't care about war history or photography particularly; my favorite pic is the one OF him at the front of the book--drunk and happy, in a tux.

It has been written that Capa intended the work as a film script, and it reads that way...but then, Capa never pretended to be a reporter, the work is his version of what happened, and if aspects are embellished, that's the way he intended it, most biographers state he was fairly lose with the truth and was prone to embellishing aspects of his work.

Capa would have turned 100 last year and this is his only book! he died in Indochine (1954) after stepping on a landmine - he was covering the war! To this day he is still regarded as the best war photographer of all times! He covered politics in Germany, Trotsky in Finland, the Spanish Civil War (where he lost his dear love Gerda Taro - writer/photographer killed by a War Tank that ran over her) and WWII!
This autobiographical book was supposed to be the plot of a movie made in Hollywood. It is just a great book about some of his best pictures.

Reading it was long overdue as I studied at Cornell's ICP in New York. As I plan a trip to Omaha beach it was now or never. Capa's account was a must. He writes with wit, dry humor and of booze, bullits and bravado. Papa probably had some influence as well. The easy and entertaining dtyle make sometimes easy to forget that it is much about LIFE and death.

Bob Capa is one of my favorite photographers. The book is quite interesting and enjoyable to read.

The preface to the book points out that Capa originally wrote it with the intent of it being turned into a movie. The result is an engagingly good collection of war stories.
If, however, you're interested in finding out more about Capa, why, for example, he continually went back into harms way or why he let his relationship with Pinky languish so he could take more war pictures, or what he was trying to capture with his photographs, anything personal at all, you won't find it here.
Instead you'll find some well told war stories (although at times he tries too hard). You'll also be treated to a collection of his photographs. You just won't find the man here.
great story!
