Black-And-White Photo Competition 2 2013 : Entry Number 1953

Judges Comment

Great style and a portrait 'in motion' that might be one of the best of the person. Simple and informal, yet very formal and iconic. Who wants to be photographed in a studio if you can get a photo like this by simply sitting down for a moment?

Photographers Comment

This portrait of legendary Magnum Photos photographer René Burri was taken at The Photographers' Gallery in London, during a book signing and ahead of his talk. I asked René for permission and shot three frames on my Leica M9-P and Leica 35mm Summilux ASPH FLE. The image was then processed in Aperture and Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2.
