The Germans

Pictures by the Magnum agency's Swiss photographer René Burri.

Burri became a full member of Magnum in 1959, when he started work on his book, The Germans, published in Switzerland in 1962. The book was similar to Robert Frank's The Americans. And like The Americans, Burri's photo essay on life in Germany was considered ahead of its time.
