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.
