Another great photograph from ICP’s exhibition highlighting the work of David “Chim” Seymour: Children playing in a suburban park. Behind lies the Danube with the newly built Margareten Bridge. The theme of Ring a Ring o’ Roses, often contrasting with a ruined landscape, is recurrent in Chim’s work as well in his colleague Werner Bischof’s post-World War II European work. Budapest, Hungary. 1948.

The images featured—both celebrated, iconic photographs and lesser-known surprises—encompass more than 70 years of history: from the Normandy landings by Robert Capa, the 1968 Paris riots by Bruno Barbey, and the war in Chechnya by Thomas Dworzak, to René Burri’s filmic sequence of close-ups of Che Guevara, classic New Yorkers by Bruce Gilden, and Eve Arnold’s famous portrait of the charismatic and image-savvy Malcolm X.

Often compared to an artist’s sketchbook, a contact sheet is the photographer’s first look at what he or she has captured on film, and provides a uniquely intimate glimpse into the working process. From January 20 through May 6, 2012, Magnum Contact Sheets will be on view at the International Center of Photography. See more here.
