An elegant production filled with high quality, full-page images taken by the legendary Magnum photo-reporter René Burri. Produced as a metaphorical bunch of flowers to celebrate Burri's 75th birthday this book is divided into three sections. The first presents known and unknown black and white photographs; the second, never-ever-before published colour photographs taken from slides; while the third presents facsimiles from magazine images – most of them long time lost as negatives. A small picture biography of Burri at work concludes the celebration.
