    Full Description

    Elliott Erwitt was one of the greatest of his profession. His photographs have shaped the visual history of the 20th century and continue to have an impact in the 21st century. Although Erwitt’s work spans several decades and continents as well as numerous themes, it is always instantly recognisable. His spontaneous and original visions speak of true artistry without ever appearing artificial.

    For this collection, Erwitt himself selected the photographs that he considers to be his best. Anyone leafing through this carefully edited retrospective will be filled with a nostalgic mood, a sense of wonder – and an enduring feeling for the richness of life.

    Text in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
