On the occasion of the 100th Birthday of Werner Bischof in the year 2016, the Werner Bischof Estate provided original material from the archive for a very special retrospective. Next, the exhibition of this show will be in Kriens, Switzerland.

The exhibition features original vintage prints, contact sheets, drawings, letters, diaries, publications, books, etc., for a presentation which illustrates the photographer and his work from different perspectives and angles.

This retrospective, compiled by Magnum Photos Paris and Marco Bischof from the Werner Bischof Estate, presents the “icons” from Bishop’s work and at the same time shows little-known aspects of his extraordinary life.
