Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

© 2018 Universidad de Guadalajara. All Rights Reserved. Eighty years after the myth of the war photographer's modernization using the figure of Robert Capa at the Spanish civil war, we analyze his evolution and the mythification process by analogy of Agustí Centelles in the Spanish Transition. Since then the media comparison between both is a constant, eclipsing the rest of professionals who covered that innovative conflict from the visual communication perspective.
