Publisher's description: Cofounder of the Magnum agency with Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, David "Chim" Seymour (1911-1956) was one of the most acclaimed photojournalists of the twentieth century, and a man who documented his times with a keen social conscience, always determined to be "in the middle of the action." Working for leading magazines such as Life and Regards, Seymour covered the most significant events of the postwar era: the Spanish Civil War; the places and faces of a Europe ravaged by World War II; the hopes placed in the new State of Israel. He also documented a postwar Italy filled with contradictions--the rising stars of the Cinecitta Studios, the Vatican palaces and Venice, along with religious processions and the small rural schools scattered through southern Italy. This volume traces the career of this extraordinary photographer through over 120 black-and-white images.
