Overview

This stunning assembly of work was personally selected by Erwitt himself. Most of these images have never been published before. The generous trim size and large number of double-page spreads allow you to admire the master's technique and artistry up close. Every image is photography at its most ebullient and life-enhancing and each reflects the scope of Erwitt's observant and eclectic eye. Here is a fitting tribute to this Magnum photographer who has shot such Hollywood legends as Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, yet whose delight in everyday irony has captured many witty moments, including his famous portraits of people and their dogs.

Born in Paris in 1928, Elliott Erwitt arrived in the U.S. in the late 1930s. Establishing himself in the 40s and 50s as a leading magazine photographer, he joined the prestigious Magnum Agency in 1953. In addition to his work in magazines, he achieved great success as an advertising photographer. He currently lives in New York City.
