Rene Burri: Larger Than Life
René Burri is a seminal figure in the world of photography. A long time member of the prestigious Magnum agency, he is responsible for some of the most iconic images of our age. His work has been exhibited in and collected by museums worldwide and his images featured in virtually every magazine title published over the last 60 years.
The story of René Burri’s career is the story of the second half of the twentieth century. His curiosity and humanity has gained him almost unrestricted access to the major events and personalities of the last sixty years, and his work is a fascinatingly personal account of these men and women. He is admired and respected by his peers for his telling and cerebral photo-essays and social commentaries, which are made with a characteristically sympathetic and human eye.
Larger than Life features René Burri’s most iconic and celebrated works presented for the first time in a monumental size and limited edition.Though images that are well known to connoisseurs of Burri’s photographs, these new prints offer a new and dynamic re-interpretation of these classic works in a contemporary scale.
