Compassionate, humorous, sinister, playful, bitter, bawdy, lyrical – this collection confirms Erwitt’s limitless ability to capture a range of moods and nuances of expression

Overview

Utterly individual, yet impossible to classify, Elliott Erwitt is one of the most remarkable photographers in America today. Sudden coincidences and chance encounters with objects and situations allow him to capture glimpses of the ridiculous or the comical side of everyday events, and his visual jokes become striking and pithy observations about life. Compassionate, humorous, sinister, playful, bitter, bawdy, lyrical – this collection confirms Erwitt’s limitless ability to capture a range of moods and nuances of expression.

The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an affordable pocket format. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series has been awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
