Critical Che

Rene Burri exposition in Rotterdam.

He really made me think about his approach to photography. Making shots before and after an event might just be as interesting as Bresson's "decisive moments".

Some of his work was placed next to each other in one frame so that they became these little stories. Subtracting the decisive moment from an series and keeping the story intact (maybe it even makes the story more powerfull). Your brain will fill in the gaps. Great lesson for me as an amateur photographer of something I already knew as a designer. :-)
