In December 2007 three small cardboard boxes were found in Mexico City. These boxes contained 126 rolls of films which includes the Spanish civil war negatives taken by Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and Chim(David Seymour). There are also several portraits of Capa and Taro by Fred Stein. These negatives will be exhibited at the brother of Robert Capa, Cornell Capa’s International Center of Photography from 24 September.
