About this title:

Synopsis: This book traces the career of Chim, famed photojournalist and cofounder of Magnum Photos, who dedicated much of his life to documenting war and its aftermath. Born Dawid Szymin in Warsaw, Chim began his career in the early 1930s photographing for leftist magazines in Paris. In 1936, one of these magazines, Regards, sent him to the front lines of the civil war in Spain, along with comrades Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. Although war formed the backdrop of much of his reportage, Chim was an astute observer of 20th-century European politics, social life, and culture, from the beginnings of the antifascist struggle to the rebuilding of countries ravaged by World War II. Like millions of other Europeans, Chim had suffered the pain of dislocation and the loss of family in a concentration camp. His profound empathy for his subjects is evident in his postwar work on child refugees. In this volume, Chim emerges as both a talented reporter and a creator of elegant compositions of startling grace and beauty. The book places Chim's work within the broader context of 1930s-1950s photography and European politics.

From the Inside Flap: This book traces the career of Chim, famed photojournalist and cofounder of Magnum Photos, who dedicated much of his life to documenting war and its aftermath. This book places Chim's work within the broader context of 1930s-1950s photography and European politics.

Book Description Dieses Buch spürt der Karriere von Chim nach, dem berühmten Fotojournalisten und Mitbegründer von Magnum Photos, der einen Großteil seines Lebens der Dokumentation des Krieges und seiner Nachwirkungen widmete. Geboren als Dawid Szymin in Warschau, begann Chim seine Karriere im Paris der frühen 1930er Jahre als Fotograf für linksgerichtete Zeitschriften. Im Jahr 1936, schickte ihn eine dieser Zeitschriften an die Frontlinien des Bürgerkriegs in Spanien, zusammen mit Robert Capa und Gerda Taro. Obwohl der Krieg die Kulisse eines Großteils seiner Reportagen bildete, war Chim ebenso ein kluger Beobachter der europäischen Politik, des sozialen Lebens und der Kultur des 20. Jahrhunderts - von den Anfängen des antifaschistischen Kampfes bis zum Wiederaufbau. Wie Millionen anderer Europäer hatte Chim den Schmerz der Entwurzelung und den Verlust seiner Familie in einem Konzentrationslager erlitten. Seine Fähigkeit zur Einfühlung in die von ihm porträtierten Menschen zeigt sich in seinen Nachkriegsarbeiten zu Kinderflüchtlingen. In diesem Band taucht Chim als ein talentierter Reporter und ein Schöpfer von eleganten Kompositionen von überraschender Anmut und Schönheit auf. Das Buch stellt Chims Arbeit in den breiteren Kontext der Fotografie der 1930er- bis 1950er-Jahre und den der europäischen Politik. (Text engl.) 24 x 28,5 cm, 304 S., zahlr. Abb., geb.
