Reflections from the Heart: Photographs by David Seymour
The Corcoran Gallery of Art, in partnership with the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography, Rochester and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), presented Reflections from the Heart, a survey exhibition of 75 photographs taken by founding Magnum photographer David Seymour, also known as Chim. Organized by Tom Beck, UMBC curator and leading scholar of Seymour’s art, the exhibition was on view at the Corcoran Gallery of Art from March 18 through June 4, 2006.
The small retrospective was organized chronologically and showcased many of the photojournalistic black and white images for which Chim is best known. Also exhibited for the first time were several of Chim’s rare color images. A new publication, David Seymour (Chim) (Phaidon, Fall 2005), which accompanied the exhibition, features text and captions by scholar and curator, Tom Beck. This was the first exhibition of Seymour’s work since the 1996 retrospective organized by the International Center of Photography, New York.
