"Photographic images of 20th century icons hung in our living quarter in Zurich. My father had international friends who came and went. Meanwhile I, on my tricycle, traced circles around the studio flat. In 1954, shortly before I turned four, my father Werner Bischof plunged, together with his station wagon, into the ravine at Rio San Miguel in Peru. Following his untimely death, our mother Rosllina took over the running of his photographic archives... When she died, unexpectedly, in 1986, my father's legacy began to interest me and before long I became aware of its significance. What fascinated me was its capacity for reflecting on existential questions... For this book I have chosen pictures that I find touching in their timelessness, refreshing and thought-provoking, or graphically fascinating. For me, Werner Bischof remains an example of the work ethic, of social and creative consequence. This is work that invites us all to take up a dialogue with the world." Marco Bischof. Ref LPB0344
