Book Review: Elliott Erwitt Snaps

The first comprehensive monograph covering the complete career of Elliott Erwitt b. Elliott Erwitt Snaps is a book that reminds us that brilliant photographs that will never tire are no more than an enjoyable stroll away.

The publisher could easily have cut the number of images in the book to a third, or even a quarter. From famous images such as Nikita Khrushchev and Richard Nixon arguing in Moscow in 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.

It works OK, but the portrait format of the book means that when single landscape format images are printed on a single page, they end up rather small.
