As a world-renowned photojournalist and celebrated member of Magnum photo agency, René Burri’s photographs
have had a huge influence on our visual understanding of the major political and cultural events of the second half of
the twentieth century. From his iconic shot of Che Guevara smoking a cigar, to his beautifully composed photographs
of the construction of Brasilia, his black-and-white photography is ingrained in the collective consciousness.
Previously less-known are his colour photographs that he has continually taken alongside his black-and-white work.
This book introduces, for the first time, a retrospective of his personal selection of colour photographs.
