There were two books published under the title of 'The Concerned 
Photographer', featuring (in the first volume) the work of Robert Capa, Len 
Freed, Andre Kertsz, David Seymour, Werner Bischof and Dan Weiner. Not 
neccersarily pictures of war but certainly compassionate fine pictures.

Concerned photography has altered my consciousness and behavior
since I first encountered it at age 14, back in 1960. I believe
myself a better informed person having seen this visual evidence
as well as having read about man's inhumanity to man. I also
believe that it has had similar effects on my daughter and others
I've known who have taken an interest in the material. I'm sure
that some have moved to action and others have not. But the
material has value both as history and propoganda. For my own
sanity I must believe that sooner or later a future generation
will get the point, whether the photographers, film makers and
writers can reach saint hood or not.
