When he was a little boy, he could catch ﬁve ﬂies with one hand. Nowadays, he can’t count all the photo awards he has received on one hand. His work spans six decades and every continent. Born in Switzerland in 1933, René Burri is a chronicler of world events, a portraitist of artists, celebrities and personalities. “I want to use my eyes, heart and mind to be part of the world, to capture what’s going on around me,” he muses.
A full member of Magnum Photos since 1959, René Burri impacted 20th century photography like few others. Never satisﬁed with a simple form of visual documentation, the photographer is always looking for unique perspectives and aesthetically demanding solutions, resulting in multi-layered images with a spontaneous yet precise composition.
René Burri is a well-travelled cosmopolitan and an observer of contemporary history. In 2013, Leica Camera AG acknowledged the work of this keen-eyed master by granting him the Leica Hall of Fame Award. He selected the twelve images for this calendar himself – a reﬂection of his undiminished creativity.
