George Rodger

Humanity and Inhumanity
by George Rodger
Publisher's Description
A retrospective on George Rodger, one of the founding members of the greatest picture agency of the post-war era, Magnum. With a foreword by Henri Cartier-Bresson, this book spans Rodger's long career, and is a fitting tribute to this icon of humanist photography. Review
Rodger, co-founder of Magnum Photos picture agency, began his career as a still photographer for the BB. His memorable images of World War II are unsurpassed--Eric Sevareid broadcasting live during an air raid; steel-helmeted civil defense workers taking time for tea in a china cup; the corpse of a German soldier lying in front of a suburban villa in France. Yet his studies of tribal rituals and ceremonies in South Africa, Uganda and Southern Sudan after the war are just as likely to get under your skin. The humanity in Rodger's work is epitomized, perhaps, by his photo of Dr. Albert Schweitzer in his jungle office, with a kitten on his desk.
