Sergio Larrain (1931-2012)
Magnum is saddened to announce the passing of Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain. Never afraid to utilize the vertical frame or play with depths of field, Larrain was known especially for his graphic sensibility. Larrain became an associate member of Magnum in 1959 and a full member in 1961. In 1968, he gave up photography to pursue his study of Eastern culture and mysticism. PARIS—Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain, 1967.
