One of the leading photographers of his generation, Elliott Erwitt (b.1928) has been taking pictures since the late
1940s. 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 pictures, over half of which have never been published before, Elliott Erwitt Snaps is a unique
and comprehensive survey of his work. From famous images such as Nikita Khrushchev and Richard Nixon arguing
in Moscow in 1959 and Marilyn Monroe with the cast of the movie The Misfits, to his many more personal images of
places, things, people and animals, Erwitt's unmistakable, 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
period's finest image-makers.
