Post-war, renowned photo journalist Robert Capa turned his lens to luxury ski resorts of Europe.  The International Center of Photography hosts an exhibit of Capa’s rich color images from January through May of 2014.

For me, this is reason enough to make an excursion to the city.  Hopefully sooner rather than later. . .
