Instituto Cervantes Book Launch: "On Being the Eyes of the World: The invention of Modern Photojournalism"

These images were published in magazines and shown in newsreels around the world, giving those at home a new view on the war and creating a new genre of photojournalism. Today, images of war continue to bring a connection to a conflict and people that viewers would not have otherwise. Listen as they discuss the importance of their work.
