Summary
  • "George Rodger's Indiana Jones-style escapades are legendary. During World War II he covered sixty-one countries for Life magazine. He was chased through three hundred miles of Burmese jungle by both the Japanese army and a tribe of headhunters. And he was the first to record the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp
  • He quit war photography when he realized he was arranging "thousands of Jewish corpses in nice photographic compositions." He went on to become a key photographer of African tribal life, covering over 75,000 miles of "old Africa" in a Land Rover and even surviving a white rhino charge."
  • "In stunning detail Carole Naggar not only recalls Rodger's singular life and artistic contribution but she also provides an in-depth look at the complex dynamics of violence, ethics, and photo-journalism. As such, this book places the legacy of George Rodger within a broader sociohistorical context."--Jacket
