Centennial of Gerda Taro’s Birth, August 1, 1910 « Fans in a Flashbulb
In her brief but dramatic career, Gerda Taro (1910–1937) made some of the most striking photographs to come from the front lines of the Spanish Civil War. A pioneering photojournalist, Taro combined the dynamic camera angles of New Vision photography with an emotional and physical closeness to her subjects. Her images were reproduced extensively in the French leftist press, along with those of her photographic collaborator and romantic partner, Robert Capa. While photographing the Battle of Brunete in July 1937, Taro was struck by a tank and killed. In honor of her heroism, Gum Inc. produced trading cards depicting her tragic death in the line of duty.

frenchtwist:In 1934 the MPAA voluntarily passed the Motion Picture Production Code, more generally known as the Hays Code, largely to avoid governmental regulation. The code prohibited certain plotlines and imagery from films and in publicity materials produced by the MPAA. Among others, there was to be no cleavage, no lace underthings, no drugs or drinking, no corpses, and no one shown getting away with a crime.
A.L. Shafer, the head of photography at Columbia, took a photo that intentionally incorporated all of the 10 banned items into one image.
The photograph was clandestinely passed around among photographers and publicists in Hollywood as a method of symbolic protest to the Hays Code. [ftp]
