"Chim picked up his camera the way a doctor takes his stethoscope out of his bag, applying his diagnosis to the condition of the heart. His own was vulnerable."—Henri Cartier-Bresson
Among the great masters of European photography, Chim endures as a legend. Along with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and George Rodger, he co-founded photojournalism's famous cooperative, Magnum Photos, and occupies a special place in the canon.
This retrospective monograph gathers hundreds of rolls of film Chim shot shortly after World War II for UNICEF. One of Chim's best-known projects, this series was printed by Life in 1948 and by UNICEF is 1949. However, myriad images were left unpublished, hidden from the public audience. Chim: Children of War, created in close collaboration with Chim's estate, unveils many of these never-before-seen photographs, further cementing Chim as one of the most influential photographers of our time, an image-maker whose emotional empathy remains unmatched.
David Seymour (Chim) was born in Warsaw, Poland. He later moved to Paris to study art and soon gravitated to photography to begin his life's work—a tableau of haunting social portraits and critiques of the twentieth century's turbulent events. Chim was killed by gunfire while on assign¬ment in the Suez in 1956.

Among the great masters of European photography, CHIM (David Seymour) endures as a legend. Along with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and George Rodger, he was a co-founder of photojournalism?s famous cooperative, Magnum Photos, and occupies a special place in the canon. Born David Syzmin in Warsaw, Poland, he moved to Paris to study art, and soon gravitated to photography to begin the epic scope of his life?s work—a tableau of haunting social portraits and critiques of the turbulent events of the twentieth century ranging from the Front Populaire to the Spanish Civil War, from the devastating aftermath of World War II to the birth of Israel. Chim was tragically killed by machine-gun fire in Suez in 1956. CHIM: Children of War includes over 180 black and white images culled from his work just after WWII, shot for the then-newly-formed foundation UNICEF.
