Elliott Erwitt has shot many images that have become modern masterpieces. His unparalleled visual talent captures something special that transcends the moment, making it live on and develop a life of its very own.
This Special Edition gathers some of his most memorable works in a landmark collection. From his image of Marilyn in that white dress to his portrait of a dressed Chihuahua in proportion with a pair of woman’s legs and that of a Great Dane—in each instance it was Erwitt’s faultless sense of timing and his eye for the remarkable?whether a glance, a movement, or an interaction—that made the work unique. Each of these icons is a representation of how we live, a lasting symbol of the age and its vitality, that will represent our world to future generations.
