Consignment - Werner Bischof. 1916-1954
Werner Bischof
One of the world's greatest humanist photographers, Werner Bischof, died on 16 May 1954, one week before his fellow Magnum photographer, Robert Capa.

Bischof studied photography with Hans Finsler in his native Zürich at the School for Arts and Crafts (1932 -1936), then opened a photography and advertising studio which he ran until his military service in 1939. As of 1942, he was a freelancer for Du magazine, and got international recognition after publication of his 1945 reportage on war's devastation.

In the following years Bischof travelled in Italy and Greece for the Schweizer Spende....
