This book presents one of the outstanding photographers of the twentieth century. In his brief life, Werner Bischof travelled half the world to create the oeuvre that would seal his reputation as a master of classic b&w photography. This book provides a comprenhensive survey of the Swiss photographer's output stradding the divide between art and journalism.

"WernerBischofPictures" is the result of close collaboration between Marco Bischof, the first born son of Werner and Rosellina Bischof, who has been in charge of the Werner Bischof Estate, since 1986, Smon Maurer, director of the Helmhaus Z├╝rich and graphic designer Peter Zimmermann.
