Known the world over for his iconic images of Che Guevara and Brasília, René Burri is one of the world?s greatest living photographers. Now, for the first time ever and featuring many never before published images, Burri?s remarkable and adventurous work is brought together in this career retrospective of over 400 duotone photographs.
René Burri Photographs is the culmination of several years of scholarly research by distinguished writer Hans Michael Koetzle into Burri?s important contribution to reportage photography. In 21 thematically organized chapters, we accompany Burri across Europe to the Middle East, Vietnam, Brazil, Cuba and beyond: we visit Picasso, Le Corbusier, Yves Klein and Giacometti in their studios; we witness political figures such as Che Guevara in repose, and Fidel Castro at the helm.
