The Life and Death of the Spanish Republic

The Life and Death of the Spanish Republic

Travelling towards the Ebro Front on 5 November 1938, Buckley photographed the group of international correspondents that accompanied him. Clockwise from left—Ernest Hemingway, Robert Capa, Vincent ‘Jimmy’ Sheean, Herbert Matthews and Hans Kuhle. Capa fills the cups of his colleagues with champagne. Afterwards, they crossed the River Ebro in a rented boat to see the effects of Franco’s bombing of Mora d’Ebre. Buckley was travelling from Sitges, the rest from Barcelona.
