“Capa got into the bathtub with an old British financial report, and I went to sleep while he was still there. For all I know he spent the night in the tub.” – wrote John Steinbeck about Capa during their trip to the USSR. Capa’s biographer, Richard Whelan also commented on Capa’s habit of spending hours in the tub reading (or sleeping). Get into the tub and read, like Capa, and then take the photo that our photo-automat takes of you with you.
