David Seymour (1911 – 1956) (Also known as Chim) was a Polish photographer and photojournalist. He was known for his images from the Spanish Civil War, for co-founding Magnum Photos with Henri-Cartier Bresson, Robert Capa and George Rodger and for his project “Children of War” with UNICEF that captured the plight of children in the aftermath of World War II. He went on to photograph major stories across Europe, Hollywood stars on European locations, and the emergence of the State of Israel. After Robert Capa’s death, he became the new president of Magnum. He held this post until 10 November 1956, when, traveling near the Suez Canal to cover a prisoner exchange, he was killed by Egyptian machine-gun fire. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping.
