After 25-year-old Burri had soon received encouraging appreciation from the founders of Magnum - but wasn't yet approved as a full-member - he went on a half-year-long trip to Latin America in 1958. On the streets of Peruvian cities he photographed series that prove his skills in evocative framing and image design.
