Rene Burri

 

I was lucky to meet Rene Burri, legendary Swiss photographer who is best know for his pictures of Castro with cigar in October 2013.   We happened to both be staying at the same hotel in Lugano and I had a chat with him.  Later I attended a talk at a photography festival where he was a member of the panel.  He was incorrigibly flirtatious and lively.  I was shocked to learn of his passing a year later.
