“Picasso looks at me and said, ‘Sit down and eat!’ ”

We’ve lost another extraordinary photographer.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Burri’s pictures tell the story of much of the second half of the 20th century. There are conflicts — from the 1956 Suez crisis through Korea, Cyprus and Vietnam. There are portraits of Argentine cowboys. He did a color essay on the Holy Land and a book on German society. His pictures of artists, like one of Alberto Giacometti in mid-drag of a cigarette, were themselves praised as art.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
