About The Image now representing the George Rodger photo collection

My photo management company – About The Image – went live a few weeks ago – here’s an update:

April 2016: One of the first to take up ATI for representation and management is the George Rodger photo collection. We are representing the collection for commercial enquires and special projects.
George Rodger 1905 – 1995. ‘Known as “The quiet Englishman” because of his self-effacing demeanour, George Rodger described himself as a dreamer who took up photography to see what the world had to offer beyond his horizons. This exploration would take him into desert, jungle, war and many parts of the world. And in 1947 he would join Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson and David (Chim) Seymour in establishing the renowned photographic agency Magnum Photos.’
