A Retrospective

November 4, 2009January 25, 2010
In November Flo Peters Gallery will present René Burri, one of the last remaining great photography legends of the 20th century. The show gives a comprehensive insight into the work of the Swiss photographer and takes the observer onto a journey through the 20th century: From Swiss rural life to roman dolce Vita as well as Argentinean Gauchos and impressions of Maoist China René Burri did nothing less than photo imposing pure History onto paper. With portraits of for example Le Corbusier, Alberto Giacometti or Che Guevara, René Burri eternalized some of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
