Iconic Swiss photographer takes us on a journey through six images from his archive, photographing figures like Che Guevara chain-smoking in his office in 1963, Pablo Picasso in Cannes in 1957 and American G.I.s being entertained in a brothel in Seoul in 1961.

Burri also recalls his iconic 1960 São Paulo photograph 'Men on a Rooftop, 1960', shooting the San Cristobal Stables in Mexico city in 1976 and the reopening of the Suez Canal in 1974, explaining why modern techniques like photoshopping are getting in the way of our pursuit for the truth....
