Great D-Day Video

The Iconic Photo of D-Day from Craig Duff on Vimeo.

On the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion at Normandy, I thought I’d reprise the story I created for TIME in 2009 that was part of an Emmy-winning series of video pieces. Many thanks for photo editor Mark Rykoff for his assistance with the images, and Cynthia Young, a curator at the International Photography Center in New York, who sat down with me to tell the incredible story behind Robert Capa’s images.
