Teenager reading at Highland Park High School, Texas, November 1947. LIFE. Cornell Capa.
Capa (1918–2008) chose the phrase “concerned photographer” to describe those photographers who demonstrated in their work a humanitarian impulse to use pictures to educate and change the world, not just to record it. Capa worked for LIFE magazine from 1946 to 1967, and for the Magnum Photos agency beginning in 1954, covering social and political issues.
