Description

Swiss-born Werner Bischof (1916–1954) began his career as a painter before moving on to photography. Having perfected a subtle, graphic use of light and shadow on inanimate objects, he soon turned his lens on humanity. Bischof captured this image while on assignment for Life magazine in India, where he primarily photographed the famine in Bihar but also spent time in the country’s southern region. He encountered this boy in repose at a Kathakali dancing school.
