Marilyn Monroe, New York, 1956 by Elliott Erwitt
Book DescriptionOne 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. This Collector's Edition, designed specially for Phaidon Press, comprises a special edition of the book that is beautifully bound, individually signed and numbered, and presented in a custom-made box together with an original print that is signed and numbered by Elliott Erwitt.
