The standard narrative of Robert Capa's actions on D-Day, June 6, 1944, and the subsequent fate of his negatives -- supposedly damaged and/or destroyed in a darkroom accident at Life magazine's London office the following night -- constitutes photojournalism's most potent and durable myth. For the past four years, a team of volunteer researchers has probed this now established and indeed viral account of Capa's time on Omaha Beach and the purported loss of most of his D-Day negatives. Our discoveries have challenged the received version of this story, forcing major revisions thereto from the late picture editor John Morris.
