Elliott Erwitt's New York

With his coffee table book "New York," photography legend Elliott Erwitt pays a monochromatic tribute to the metropolis and that can be classified as a work of historical significance.



There are many coffee-table books devoted to New York, but certainly none like this one. With "New York," photography legend Elliott Erwitt pays monochromatic tribute to the metropolis of his birth, creating a book of photographs that can undoubtedly be classified as a work of historical significance. The Paris native emigrated to the U.S. in 1939 and settled in the Big Apple in 1948. Since then, the camera has been his constant companion as he wanders the streets of the metropolis.

In this revised edition, Erwitt presents compelling black-and-white photographs from throughout his career. In 16 new pages, readers get their first look at previously unreleased images from the 1950s and 1960s to immerse themselves in the New York of days gone by. A touch of nostalgia is guaranteed.

The photo book perfectly reflects New York and its soul. Celebrities stand alongside everyday New Yorkers, everyday moments shape contemporary history in an upbeat and sometimes slightly quirky way that is characteristic of Erwitt's work. No wonder he is considered one of the best street photographers in the world. His images are not only vivid and authentic, but are also characterized by a special irony that comes from the everyday situations from which they emerge. This book of photographs is fun to look at over and over again and always offers new surprises.

"New York" is the perfect coffee table book for anyone who just can't get enough of this impressive megacity. Even die-hard fans of the metropolis will discover previously undiscovered facets of the city here. For all admirers of Elliott Erwitt's photographic art, this photo book is a must-have for their home collection.
