Known the world over for his iconic images of Che Guevara and Brasilia, Rene Burri is one of the world's greatest living photographers.

A giant in the history of photography, Burri is admired and respected by his peers for his sympathetic eye and his ability to capture larger-than-life personalities on film. 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. Edited and compiled by distinguished writer Hans-Michael Koetzle in close collaboration with Burri, this book shows us his unique relationship to the major political events, key politicians, artists and cultural figures of the last 50 years.

Review:

"Burri said that 'pictures are like taxis during rush hour - if you're not fast enough someone else will get them first.' What emerges from this magnificent book is just how often Burri did get the pictures first, and in a career which has spanned over 7 decades this is truly remarkable."-Modern Painters "In addition to his obvious agility and feel for light, Burri managed to invest his images with a dynamic depth that gave them an almost palpable third dimension."-Joanna Pitman "The hefty price of this hardback is entirely justified by the sheer number of superb photographs, good-quality reproduction and mass of information on Burri himself. An excellent collection."-Amateur Photographer "A historical document of the second half of the 20th century. Its key events are witnessed, its significant players - Churchill, Sadat, Picasso, Mao, Kennedy - recorded for posterity, and all undertaken with enormous humanity, humility, and skill."-Gordon Miller, eight photojournalism "The book is cleverly designed, having the feel of a catalogue, but the permanence of something more special. It is a testament to Burri that, after nearly 500 pages, the reader is left wanting more, and knowing that what has been revealed is only a glimpse."-Micheal Cockerham, Royal Photographic Society Journal "Expansive and pleasingly offbeat."-Daily Telegraph "Photographer Rene Burri captured icons like Picasso and Che Guevara for more than 50 years... It's books like this that make your Avedon all too predictable."-Esquire "It would be difficult for young photographers today to recreate the career of Rene Burri, who came of age in the 1950s-when being a generalist was considered a sign of artistic strength. In a career spanning more than 50 years and several genres, he has covered wars, revolutions and all manner of political upheaval; shot street scenes of his beloved Paris and other world capitals...His new book, Rene Burri Photographs, brings much of this impressive work into a single volume, creating a memorable portrait of the second half of the twentieth century."-Metropolis "On the ample evidence here (Che Guevera, cigar confidently erect, is just one of many spirited shots), this is photojournalism at its most artful, full of intelligence, feeling, and graphic punch, the last given maximum impact by the book's knockout design."-Photograph "Why Rene Burri isn't quite a household name (like fellow Magnum photog Cartier-Bresson) is a bit of a mystery... Rene Burri Photographs by Hans-Michael Koetzle is practically a pictorial history of the mid-20th century. Highly recommended."-Popular Photography & Imaging "Though not the first book on this photographer, this is the lengthiest treatment to date, documenting a 50-year photojournalistic career with more than 400 duotone images. Together with Burri, Koetzle has unearthed the famous and the rare from Burri's archive, which results in a commingling of the tragic, the ordinary, and the celebrity in 21 geographically oriented chapters."-Library Journal "This is a timely volume, a lifetime retrospective with an excellent text by the photo-historian Hans-Michael Koetzle, and about 500 of the Swiss photographer's pictures. It pleases because of the quality of the images, because of the intelligent and informative text, because of the spirit with which Burri's beautifully composed work inhabits the books."-Art on Paper "Over 400 duotones fill this sumptuous volume, effectively reminding us of the work we have taken for granted for so long."-PhotoEye

Descripción Phaidon Press, 0. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Rene Burri Photographs. Text by Hans-Michael Koetzle. Published by Phaidon, London, 2003. For decades, Burri has been known to photography insiders as a seminal, twentieth-century figure. But many people still ask, Who is R?ne Burri? For starters, he is a member of the prestigious Magnum Agency, invited to join in 1959 at the young age of 26. Born and still residing in Switzerland, Burri is most-known for his iconic images of Che Guevara, the young Cuban revolutionary and right-hand man to Castro. But with nearly 50 years of photography and filmmaking under his belt, his project list is extensive. Phaidon intends to remedy our unfamiliarity with his name (if not his work) through their publication of this massive and encompassing career retrospective on Burri's work. Twentyone thematic chapters detail his contributions to our collective understanding of place and personalities from the 20th century. The first international recognition for his work came with the seminal photography book on post-WWII Germany, Die Deutschen (The Germans) in 1962. In this new volume we witness his travels in Europe to the Middle East, Brazil, Cuba, and Indochina, and enter the studios of Picasso, Le Corbusier, and Giacometti as well. Over 400 duotones fill this sumptuous volume, effectively reminding us of the work we have taken for granted for so long. ISBN 0714843156 448 pp., 20 color, 450 duotone illustrations, 9?x12 .

Descripción Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Known the world over, especially for his iconic images of Che Guevara, Swiss-born Rene Burri (1933-2014) was one of the greatest humanist photographers. Now, for the first time ever and featuring countless previously unpublished images, Burri s remarkable and adventurous work is brought together in this career retrospective of over 400 duotone photographs. Edited and compiled by the distinguished writer Hans-Michael Koetzle, in close collaboration with Burri, this unprecedented retrospective is a historic book of the major political events and key personalities of the twentieth century - as seen through the eyes of one photographer. Nothing like this book on Burri has ever been published before, and it is a real coup for Phaidon to be the first to publish his entire career s work. A member of the prestigious Magnum photo agency, Burri is a photographer whose curiosity and humanity as a photographer have afforded him almost unrestricted access to the major events and personalities of the last 50 years. In this way, Rene Burri Photographs is a fascinating personal account of the major artists, politicians and personalities that Burri has made a part of his life. First achieving international recognition with the seminal photography book on post-World War II Germany Die Deutschen in 1962, Burri has since become one of the most important figures in the history of photography: he is universally revered by his peers for his sympathetic eye and his capacity to capture larger-than-life personalities on film. Rene Burri Photographs comprises the culmination of years of scholarly research by distinguished writer Hans Michael Koetzle into Burri s important contribution to reportage photography, resulting in an incisive introduction, a series of in-depth essays at the beginning of each chapter and in extended captions that accompany each image. The book is designed by prominent Swiss graphic designer Werner Jeker of ADN Design, Lausanne. 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. A work of epic scope in its own right, this book is a magnificent tour de force. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99780714843155
