Following the long-delayed return of Robert Capa's "Mexican Suitcase" to ICP's midtown archive, and the overwhelming response it has received from individuals and media outlets around the world, our staff discussed the need for an online space where visitors could go to stay up-to-date about this story as it unfolds. This site grew out of those conversations.
