Description of Werner Bischof - Village near Machu Picchu, Peru, 1954

Werner Bischof (1916-1954) initially specialized and perfected himself in the graphic, subtle use of light and shadow on inanimate objects, but ultimately felt compelled to document human suffering in post-war Europe. His work as a photojournalist took him across Europe to Japan, Korea and later Peru, but Bischof always saw himself as an artist. His humanistic approach to existential human questions combined with his artistic talent made him a classic of black and white photography. He died in a car accident in the Peruvian Andes on May 16, 1954 at the age of 38.
