Bullfinch Press, 1996. FIRST EDITION. Oversized hard cover with dust jacket. In this first comprehensive retrospective of Chim's work, featuring over 150 images, many never before published, a haunting social portrait and critique of the turbulent events of the twentieth century emerges, from France's Front Populaire and the Spanish civil war to the devastating aftermath of World War II and the birth of Israel. A remembrance of one of photography's European masters, David Seymour, who helped gain recognition for photojournalism as an art form. Here are 155 photographs, from the Spanish Civil War to the founding of Israel, including his memorable series of photos of refugee children in postwar Europe. Preface by Henri Cartier-Bresson; introduction by Cornell Capa; text by Inge Bondi. 192 pages.
