George Rodger

£4.99

Product description

The life of British photographer George Rodger (1908-1995) was full of adventure. He was fascinated at an early age by important storytellers Robert Louis Stevenson, Joseph Conrad and Henry Rider Haggard. During World War II, Rodger worked in sixty-one countries as war correspondent, amongst others for LIFE and Picture Post. Traumatized by what he saw at the concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen, which had just been liberated by British forces, he decided to never again work as a war correspondent. In 1947, along with Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson and David Seymour he founded MAGNUM Photos before setting out on a 21,000-mile journey across Africa and the Middle East. This monograph presents a selection of Rodger's best photographs from between 1940 and 1949, the crucial years of his career.
