Werner Bischof


Classic photographers

After his untimely death Werner Bischof did not become an icon like Robert Capa. I personally like Bischof’s work much better. Bischof was always an involved observer and and an artist at the same time - something that, I think, distinuishes a master photojournalist from the rest of the crowd. See many of his photos over at Magnum. There is a retrospective at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery, and a new feature at ZoneZero.
