Auckland Festival of Photography presents a film about the Swiss Magnum photographer Werner Bischof by René Baumann and Marco Bischof (CH 1987): 50 minutes

Werner Bischof's photo reports about hunger in India and the wars in Korea and Indochina went around the world. Examples from this work as well as film recordings from newsreels provide the footage of UNTERWEGS, letter excerpts and diary notes from Bishop's comment. The impressive documentary, which is deliberately limited to the three major reports in the Far East, very clearly follows Werner Bischof's development as a photojournalist and shows his extremely critical relationship to photographic work for the 'big press'.

Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
