Book of the Week: Humanity and inhumanity
by George Rodger
George Rodger’s long career was dedicated to capturing and evoking the human condition. He covered events both sad and triumphant, often before anyone else had. For instance, he was among the first to photograph the Nubas of Sudan. He is also renowned for the emblematic pictures he took after World War II, when he left Britain and photographed Africa, the Near East, and the Indian subcontinent.
