Humanity and Inhumanity : The Photographic Journey of George Rodger

£9.99

Product description

Large heavy paperback book in a good condition. Crease to back bottom corner. Dust jacket in a good condition, crease to back bottom corner, general scuffing to top edge, shelf marking. A heavy book so will be sent by courier hence extra postage cost.

George Rodger (1908-95), together with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa and David 'Chim' Seymour, was a founding member of Magnum, the greatest photographic agency of the post-war era. Rodger's baptism as a photojournalist came when he was appointed a 'stringer' for Life magazine during the London Blitz in 1940. He then embarked on a series of adventures that took him to almost every battlefield of World War II in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. In 1948, after co-founding Magnum, he began a campaign of photography to rediscover humanity, travelling from Cape Town to Cairo by road.

This book presents the pictures that define Rodger's long career, together with reflections by Bruce Bernard on each phase of his extraordinary life's journey. With a revealing foreword by Henri Cartier-Bresson and 230 powerful images, it represents a fitting tribute to George Rodger and a dynamic celebration of his life's work.
