Elliot Erwitt Exhibition 21.04/09.09

“Elliott Erwitt – Personae” is the first major retrospective of the photographer's work both in black and white and in colour. The exhibition, curated by Biba Giacchetti, includes over 120 photographs personally selected by Elliot Erwin himself.

While Erwitt's black-and-white photographs are now icons of photography and are acclaimed wherever they are shown on the international scene, his colour output is virtually unknown.

The exhibition highlights the compositional elegance, the deeply human irony and occasionally even the comic side of this great American photographer's work, all features that make Erwitt a much-loved an inimitable artist who, by no mere coincidence, is often described as “the photographer of the human comedy".
