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. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From Library Journal
British photographer Rodger (1908-) is not well known to most of us, despite his photojournalistic achievements. He covered almost every theater of World War II for Life magazine, documenting his assignments and other photographic travels in a half-dozen books. With Robert Capa, David Seymour, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, he founded Magnum Photos in 1947 and continued to photograph for such illustrated magazines as National Geographic, Holiday, London Illustrated, Paris Match, and Der Stern. His most recent work, included in this retrospective volume, focuses on African tribal life. By far the most important contribution of this book is Rodger's coverage of London during the Blitz; the life of the Allied troops in Syria, Burma, Eritrea, Libya, Jordan, Afghanistan, western Africa, and Italy; and the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. The reproductions are excellent. Recommended for photojournalism and photography collections.
