Werner Bischof. Photographs 1934-1954

From September 22nd, 2017 to February 2018, Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice will host a large-scale anthological show devoted to Werner Bischof, one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century and one of the first photographers of the Magnum Agency, founded in 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa.

The show, curated by his son Marco Bischof, arrives in Italy on the occasion of the celebrations of the hundred years since the birth of the photographer, and consists of vintage prints, reminiscences, documents, letters, and publications. Considered to be one of the greatest photojournalists, Werner Bischof (Zurigo, 1916 – Trujillo, Perù,1954) did not restrict himself to recording reality with his lens, but stopped to reflect in front of his subjects in a search to express the dichotomies between industrial development and poverty, business and spirituality, modernity and tradition.

The exhibition will lead the visitors back to the golden age of photojournalism by following the footsteps of this great Swiss photographer. Werner Bischof ventured in fact into the most remote corners of the earth – from India to Japan, Korea, Indochina and then on to Panama, Chile and Peru – realizing important reportages. The exhibition itinerary will therefore present 250 photos, mostly vintage, starting from a Europe that had was still devastated by the Second World War and continuing to a poor India where there can already be glimpsed the industrial developments that were to make it become one of the new millennium’s leading nations. There follows a ruthless comparison of the elements of Japanese traditional culture, the drama of the Korean war and an analysis of the American continent. There will also be a selection of twenty previously unexhibited photos of Italy and a section devoted to his landscape and still-life photos made in Switzerland between the mid-1930s and 1940s.

The exhibition Werner Bischof. Photographs 1934-1954 is organised by the Fondazione di Venezia and Civita Tre Venezie with the collaboration of Magnum Photos and the Werner Bischof Estate, media partner Radio Monte Carlo.
