The champion of a Korongo Nuba wrestling match, Kordofan, Southern Sudan.

, United States

George Rodger was a pioneering photographer, who garnered world-wide recognition for his work. Initially, he worked for The Listener magazine. Then, his photographs of the Blitz during World War Two brought him to the attention of Life magazine, where he was given a job as a war correspondent. Consequently, he covered the war in West Africa, travelled to Iran, Burma, Sicily, Salerno and covered the Allies’ liberation of France, Belgium and Holland. Obviuosly, these extreme experiences traumatized him, deciding to vow to not cover war, and instead he focused on travelling the world with his camera.
He passe away in 1995. Since his passing, his work has been the subjects of retrospectives in Tokyo, Paris and London, including a retrospective at the Imperial War Museum North in 2008.
