'In this slim and refreshingly unassuming volume, Swiss photographer Rene Burri seeks to interpret the essence of legendary Mexican artist and architect Luis Barragan's work and, in the process, creates something approaching a work of art in its own right ... On the whole, 'Barragan by Burri' puts one in mind of some of Georgia O'Keefe's most rigorous canvasses - which cast a hypnotic spell, putting the reader in a quasi-meditative mood. Among recent publications, perhaps one of the most perfect gifts to give to someone else - or to treat yourself to.' (Lurzer's International Archive) 'The photos are well captured, the mood peaceful and calm. It is in effect, a very well laid out book. Anyone with a love of design or architecture will enjoy browsing through this book, reading the quotes, studying the photos, and also gaining a good insight into the mind of Luis Barragan ... A lovely ode to Luis Barragan's work and some beautiful architectural visuals.' (Feng Shui for Modern Living)
From the Publisher
