René Burri is one of the most talented photographers of his generation. It was his portraits of Che Guevara, Le Corbusier and Picasso that brought him international renown. He already became a member of the Magnum Photo Agency back in 1959.
Within the framework of the exhibition, "René Burri – Double Life", being presented at the Museum for Design in Zurich, up until October 13, 2013, in celebration of his 80th birthday, Burri will be given the Leica Hall of Fame Award for lifetime achievement.
During the celebration, there will be a conversation held between the photographer and Hans-Michael Koetzle, titled "A Life for Photography".
