The work of photojournalist Robert Capa will doubtlessÂ crop up in several modules during the course of the undergraduate degree, so here's a little taster courtesy of the BBC News web site. It's an audio slideshow featuring an exhibition of Capa's work that is opening at the Barbican. Worth a visit just for his extraordinaryÂ pictures of the D-Day Landings.
Â (Note: you think you felt bad if the sound was a bit dodgyÂ on your recent vox pop videos? Image how Capa felt when a developing cock-up ruined most of the pictures he'd risked his life forÂ on the Normandy beaches...)
Incidentally, if you listen to the slideshow commentary,Â take the curator's description of the Spanish War soldier "at the moment of death" with a large pinch of salt.
