Photographer René Burri gets photo-ready for his Russian visa at the photo booth downstairs Zurich-Stadelhofen station. For the occasion, he wore a dashing pink shirt and matching Digital Leica M8, whose battery unfortunately was down.

What’s it like to shoot a living photographer legend, Magnum member, longtime DU magazine contributor, who’s snapped Che, Picasso, Ingrid Bergmann, you name ‘em he’s got ‘em? In case of Burri: fun! But did you know Mr Burri’s also a master illustrator?
