           Through Chim’s biography, Carole Naggar raises the question of war photojournalism, its methods and motivations.    Deeply disturbed by war as early as his youth in Warsaw, Chim lived through all the major conflicts of his time, starting with the Spanish Civil War, wherein he acted as a committed observer who sought to affect viewers at the deepest level.  Cofounder of the Magnum Photos agency after World War II, he would continue to embody the photographic heroism that originated in Spain, doing so until his death at the end of the Suez Crisis, as he shuttled back and forth between the two camps in search of the right images to depict unspeakable War.
