In Chittagong, Bangladesh, close to the Lalbag district, bare-handed men and boys prepare to drag huge loads into the shipyard. Tankers are driven at full throttle to the beach at high tide, where they are then broken up.

Henri Cartier-Bresson invited English photographer Ian Berry to join Magnum in 1962. Berry is best known for his conflict reportage and he was one of only two photographers to document the Prague Invasion in 1968. His empathic humanitarian coverage has been received with great acclaim, particularly his work documenting the Apartheid in South Africa.
