Screen Shot 2013-06-28 at 11.26.50 PM

It’s a positively wonderful thing when a photographer is also an excellent story teller. And Port recently was able to grab some time with photographer Rene Burri. Burri is known for his photographs of major political figures and moments. The veteran was born in 1933 and recounts some of his moments with Che Guevara, Pablo Picasso, and loads more. But one of the best moments is when he tells the story of how he was punched in the face and the film was ripped out of his camera.

It’s an 11 minute video, and totally worth viewing after the jump.
