Werner Bischof's shots on display at the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice

The Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice is hosting a major retrospective dedicated to Swiss photojournalist Werner Bischof until Feb. 25, 2018.

At the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice, 250 images will recount the travels to the most remote places in the world made by the great Swiss photographer Werner Bischof, who was one of the founders of theMagnum agency.

Until February 25, 2018, visitors will be able to visit the major retrospective dedicated to the photographer, curated by his son Marco Bischof, conceived on the occasion of the centenary of the artist’s birth.

Visitors will take a long journey through Bischof’s shots: from India to Japan, Korea to Indochina, Panama, Chile and Peru. A collection of prints, memoirs, documents, letters and publications, as well as a selection of twenty unpublished photographs dedicated to Italy.

Characteristic of the famous photojournalist was to tell the dichotomy between industrial development and poverty, between modernity and tradition, as will be well noted from the images on display in the exhibition.

The retrospective"Werner Bischof. Photographs 1934-1954," organized by the Venice Foundation and Civita Tre Venezie in collaboration with Magnum Photos and the Werner Bischof Estate, is also enhanced by the documentary made in 1987 by René Baumann and Marco Bischof,"On the Road: Werner Bischof - Photographer 51-52."
