David Seymour was often a witness to war, but his
subject was rarely the battlefield. Instead, Seymour
focused on the individual and human side of war,
showing us war’s edges and aftermaths in the people
who were its workers and its victims. This selection
from the exhibition Reflections of the Heart shows us
Seymour’s compassionate treatment of the Spanish
Civil War, the tragic consequences of WWII and the
fragile environment of the Middle East, where Seymour
himself would die a violent death in 1956.
