9780714847597: Rene Burri Photographs

The first career retrospective of Rene Burri, one of the world's greatest living photographers, is now available in paperback. Known the world over for his iconic images of Che Guevara and Brasilia, Burri's remarkable and adventurous work is brought together in this career-spanning collection. More than a photography monograph, this is also a history book of the major political events and key personalities of the twentieth century seen through the eyes of one man. The photographs range through Europe to the Middle East, Vietnam, Cuba and beyond, and portray political and artistic figures like Che Guevara, Winston Churchill, Picasso and Le Corbusier. The culmination of several years of scholarly research by the distinguished writer Hans Michael Koetzle, this book reveals Burri's important contribution to reportage photography and forms a fascinating personal account of the history, politics and culture of the twentieth century.

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) '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 (Amateur Photographer) 'A historical document of the second half of the 20th century.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 (Phaidon Press), 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 ($95) 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)
