Published 1990 
From Library Journal 
Bulfinch has published yet another excellent monograph, this one on Swiss photographer Bischof, who has received less attention than such fellow Magnum photographers as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa. Bischof's images were influenced by the major photo-movements of his time: the formal concepts of Das Neues Sehen (New Vision), the surrealism of Man Ray, and the documentary tradition of photojournalism. From the 1940s through the early 1950s, he covered World War II, the bombing of Hiroshima, and the Korean War for Life , Paris-Match , and other publications; his most famous series, "Famine in India," appeared in Life in 1951. This first major compilation of Bischof's work is nicely complemented by the text, a joint effort by son Marco and Swiss art historian Magnaguagno that vividly integrates biography and history. It belongs in all photography collections.
