“Elliot Erwin: Snaps”
Elliott Erwitt has been taking pictures since the late forties. A member of the prestigious Magnum agency since 1954, he has photographed all over the world and his images have been the subject of many books and exhibitions. Containing over 500 photographs, many of which have never been published before, Elliott Erwitt Snaps is a unique and comprehensive survey of his work. From famous images like Khrushchev and Nixon arguing in Moscow in 1959 and Marilyn Monroe on the set of the film The Misfits, to his many more personal images of places, things, people and animals, Erwitt's unmistakeable, often witty, style gives us a snapshot of the famous and the ordinary, the strange and the mundane over a period of more than half a century, through the lens of one of the era's finest image-makers.
