In this exhibition a haunting social portrait and critique of the turbulent events of the first half of the twentieth century emerges. From France's Front Populaire and the Spanish civil war, to the devastating aftermath of World War II and the birth of Israel, David Seymour captured many of the 20th century's most striking images. Indelible among his most powerful photographs are his tender images of refugee children displaced or maimed by war, part of a three-year project produced in collaboration with UNICEF. Chim's quiet, owlish charm and emotional empathy extended to his portraits of such diverse figures as Ingrid Bergman, Arturo Toscanini and Audrey Hepburn, which are also included here.
