It’s no secret that life as a photojournalist has undergone rapid changes over the past twenty years, specifically in the wake of the invention of digital cameras, equipment and editing software. That being said, magazines and news sources around the world are still weaving photo-based stories into their publishing cycles, and photo editors continue to hold prominent positions at a variety of publications.

Kazuyoshi Nomachi, one of Japan’s preeminent photojournalists

Born 1946 in Kochi Prefecture, Nomachi studied under the photographer Takashi Kijima, launching his career as a freelance photographer in 1971. A journey to the Sahara Desert in 1972 led to extensive photojournalistic coverage of Africa including the Nile River region, Ethiopia, and the Great Rift Valley. From the late 1980s, he turned his attention to the Middle East and Asia and undertook long-term coverage of places such as China, Tibet and Saudi Arabia, honing in on the lifestyles and faith of people living in harsh climates. Since 2000 he has focused mainly on the Andes, India, and Iran. The resulting photographs have been published in magazines and as books, and shown in exhibitions worldwide, garnering much attention. Among his many photo books published internationally are Sahara, The Nile, Tibet, Mecca, and A Photographer’s Pilgrimage. He has won numerous awards, including the Domon Ken Award, the Minister of Education Award for Emerging Artist, the Photographic Society of Japan’s International Award, and in 2009 the Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon.

René Burri, photographe du Che Guevara est mort

L’artiste suisse est décédé hier à l’âge de 81 ans. D’origine suisse, ce photojournaliste et portraitiste parmi les plus renommés de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, l’une des figures de l’agence Magnum laisse derrière lui un patrimoine inestimable.

Le photographe René Burri, auteur du célèbre cliché de Che Guevara fumant le cigare (datant de 1963), est décédé lundi à Zurich à l’âge de 81 ans, des suites d’une longue maladie. Considéré comme l’un des plus importants photographes suisses, il a notamment travaillé pour l’agence Magnum dès 1959. Il s’est rendu dans près de 160 pays, à travers le monde, pour couvrir les principaux événements politiques mondiaux.

Sa première grande publication est sa série sur la rétrospective de Pablo Picasso, au Palazzo Reale de Milan. Parmi ses oeuvres marquantes, on retrouve une centaine de portraits de Le Corbusier en passant par Giacometti, Tinguely et Yves Klein. Bien qu’il ait couvert de nombreux conflits, il ne souhaitait pas photographier des cadavres.
