    Werner Bischof. Unseen Colour - by Marco Bischof

    Werner Bischof. Unseen Colour - by Marco Bischof

    When we think of old photographs from the 1930s, we immediately conjure up a visual repertoire of black-and-white landscapes, streets and portraits. However, the Swiss photographer Werner Bischof was already thinking in colour at a time when it was reserved for advertising catalogues, cartoons and American blockbusters, all products of consumer society.

    In this episode the recent discovery by Werner’s son, Marco Bischof, of a series of unpublished colour photographs provides the opportunity to revisit the golden years of photography, the Magnum agency and the Swiss photographer’s life, career and avant-garde technique.



    The first episode of the MASI Lugano podcast is presented by Nabila Dolfini. Recording, Edit & Music By Ryan Jay Tweedie for Recall Sound Production.
