Rene Burri prefers soft focus

Frontline Network member Deborah Bonello had a natter with Swiss-born veteran Magnum snapper Reni Burri. He’s had enough of blood and guts,

What I deplore is this kind of focusing on violence and almost pornographic views on what’s going on. There’s a big wide world out there which is fantastic to record. There’s still a lot of work to do… It’s said that I never took a picture of dead soldiers or people. I found in difficult moments that I couldn’t take pictures and was more interested socially and economically before and after.” link
