Elliott Erwitt: Catalogo / Catalogue Palazzo Madama, Turin

Magnum Photos & Silvana Editoriale, 2023


Elliott Erwitt (Paris, 1928) is one of the most important and brilliant photographers of the 20th century, member of the Magnum Photos agency since 1953.

This book retraces the different stages of his work through 136 black and white works, which he himself selected. An original, sharp look, capable of delicately underlining the comic and unusual, sometimes ridiculous, character of certain aspects of life, with a predilection for snapshots stolen from the street: “It is a question of reacting to what we see, without preconceived ideas; we can find images to photograph everywhere, it is enough simply to notice things, to be interested in what surrounds us and to take care of humanity. »
