In Jaipur, known as the ‘Pink City’ of India, tractors and trucks drive along a construction site, like minuscule insects. Traces on the sand, created by the vehicles’ paths, change the original face of the desert landscape. The highly contrasted black and white tones are reminiscent of a pencil drawing, shaped by the human hand.

After capturing the blitz in London, photographer George Rodger became a war correspondent for the magazine Life. He won eighteen campaign medals covering Free French activities in West Africa, and went on to document the war front in Eritrea, Abyssinia and the Western Desert. In 1947, Rodger was invited to join Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour and William Vandivert in founding Magnum.
