Magnum co-founder David ‘Chim’ Seymour’s portrait of Peggy Guggenheim is available to buy until Friday! http://bit.ly/2qSMEMk
“If you look at many of Chim’s photos, and ask yourself what happened in the 3 minutes before that photo was taken, you’ll mostly come to the conclusion that he made a personal relationship with these people. He didn’t surprise them, he didn’t photograph them from a distance or over their shoulders… He made a close, personal and emotional relationship.”
— Ben Shneiderman, nephew of David Seymour (“David Seymour’s ‘Reflections from the Heart,’” Morning Edition, National Public Radio, March 23, 2006)
