This new monograph captures the life and work of a Magnum great, Werner Bischof, and features his most iconic images, as well as insight into his life as a photojournalist and artist. Known for his postwar social documentary work, Bischof was inspired to become a journalist after the ruin of World War II left him unable to be a passive observer. He traveled documenting both the suffering of the postwar world and the day-to-day life within traditional cultures affected by industry and technology. This expansive collection brings together these photographs, organized geographically--Europe, India, Japan and Korea, Hong Kong, Indochina, and North and South America. Accompanying the photographs are the contact sheets, letters, diaries, and sketches that give an intimate glimpse into his creative process, revealing the highlights, struggles, and his vulnerability. The book encapsulates Bischof's far-reaching search for human connection through storytelling and is a testament to his relentless obsession to find harmony and beauty. In the words of Simon Maurer, "his photographs open up worlds." And true to this quote, this book provides a time capsule of the postwar world, opened up by the compelling and profound story of the life of this adventurous artist.

"In his brief life, Werner Bischof (1916-1954) travelled half the world to create the oeuvre that would seal his reputation as a master of classic black-and-white photography. This book provides a comprehensive survey of the Swiss photographer's output straddling the divide between art and journalism. His work in the nascent field of colour photography is also well represented." "Visiting southern Germany after the Second World War ended, he was appalled at the sheer scale of the destruction and set about documenting Europe in the aftermath of war. In those early days of photojournalism, Bischof had his pictures published in the leading magazines of the western world and became a founding member of the legendary Magnum Photos group." "Bischof's 1951 photo essay on famine in India won him international acclaim. His travels in Asia inspired a life long interest in the relationship between tradition and modernism, culminating in the photographs of Japan. Working in the war zones of Korea and Indochina, Bischof became increasingly disillusioned by photojournalism and, after two years in Asia he returned to Zurich." "In the autumn of 1953 he created expansively composed colour photographs in the USA. He then travelled on to Central and South America in search of harmony between man and nature. Werner Bischof was killed in a road accident in the Andes in 1954."--BOOK JACKET.

In 1916, with the Great War reducing northern Europe to a treeless, shattered void, a boy was born to the prosperous director of a pharmaceutical firm in Zurich. He was named Werner. It was not an auspicious time to be born and, indeed, his mother died soon after. As a child, young Werner sought order in his life by dissecting snails and photographing, in the limpid light of his creation, the elegant whorls revealed. He did not become the physical training instructor his father wanted him to be. He did not become the painter he had once wanted to be in Paris in 1939, on the brink of another devastating conflict. He became Werner Bischof, the man, and a photographer of incalculable artistry who found in both order and the chaos he confronted and experienced a sublime beauty, a humanity that was singularly his own. His photographs of a post-war Europe in poverty and despair expressed infinite hope for the human condtion, yet he was only 29. Less than 10 years later he was dead, leaving behind among his last photographs that of a Peruvian child playing his flute on the edge of a ravine. It is now an iconic photograph with a fatal allure. Bischof himself died when his jeep plunged over a ravine in the Andes on a quest for the faces, the lives, of harmony there. Fifty years later his son Marco has gathered together 70 previously unpublished photographs by Werner Bischof. They powerfully reiterate the man his father was, the nature of his humanity and his search for a benign and beautiful cognisance of the brief and terrifying world he lived in.

Magnum Photos, founded in 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Georges Rodger, David 'Chim' Seymour, and Bill Vandivert, is one of the most famous photography agencies in the world. Until recently, an exhibition curated by L. Fritz Gruber for the 1956 photokina in Cologne was considered the earliest Magnum group show. However, more than 50 years later, an even earlier exhibition has been rediscovered. This is the first publication in Italy to provide a complete documentation of this exhibition. A total of eighty-three vintage prints by eight Magnum photographers? Werner Bischof, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Ernst Haas, Erich Lessing, Jean Marquis, Inge Morath, and Marc Riboud? are featured in large-format reproductions. The exhibition?s main theme was?photographic humanism?: people and their everyday surroundings, photographed without any kind of sensationalism by committed photojournalists, who believed in educating and bettering the world through their authentic documents.00Exhibition: Museo di Santa Giulia, Brescia, Italy (07.03. - 03.09.2017).
