I am very sad to hear that René Burri has passed away today. He was one of the greatest photographers of the second half of the XXth century, and I would say that it is thanks to his photographs that many amateurs and professionals love this art.
Personnally, I think that his book “Photographs” published in 2003 is one of the most important books of photography. He was a master of composition, and he was extremely elegant and subtile.
I would like to share this video, where he explained some of his most iconic photographs.
