Werner Bishof: Life and Work

Leaving the Ivory Tower is an online essay on the life and work of Werner Bischof, photographer for Magnum. Originally from Switzerland, Bischof was formally trained as a photographer and documented the Europe after WWII. In the early 1950's, he traveled extensively and documented famine stricken Bihar (India), life and socio-economic issues in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Indochina. Bishof died at the early age of 38 in an accident in Peru. The essay is commented by Marco Bischof, Werner Bischof's son.
