The Werner Bischof‘s exhibition Point of View, curated by his son Marco Bischof, presents 250 photographs, largely vintage editions, taken from his most important reportages. The collection covers the long journeys that brought the Swiss artist to the most remote corners of the world, from India to Japan, from Korea to Indochina, to Panama, Chile and Peru.

The curation includes 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.?

Organized by Fondazione di Venezia and Civita Tre Venezie, in collaboration with Magnum Photos and with Werner Bischof Estate, media partner Radio Montecarlo.
