77 Strange Sensations
by René Burri
Many of René Burri’s images have become icons of the 20th century—Che Guevara smoking a cigar, a group of men on the roof of a skyscraper, architect Le Corbusier—but to many, those works are just the tip of the iceberg. Burri and Dino Simonett worked together for two years re-editing and discovering “unseen” images from Burri’s immense archive, culminating in this book, published in honor of Burri’s 65th birthday. 77 Strange Sensations presents a personal, completely subjective "fountain-of-youth-selection" of Burri’s work, each photograph capturing and revealing to us at least one "strange sensation."

Join the Fray
With photography, I like to create fiction out of reality. I try and do this by taking society's natural prejudice and giving this a twist.
