The exhibition travelled on to other major venues throughout Spain. Presents Elliott Erwitt's "EE 60/60". A magnificent and comprehensive survey of his work. "From his 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 more personal images of places, things, people, and animals, Erwitt's unmistakable, 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. For Erwitt, photography is both a study and a celebration of life, the basic actions of life, the things people do" (Magnum Agency). Erwitt's imagery has life itself, unadorned and un-mediated, as its orbit, and humanity as its overriding theme. A beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for Elliott Erwitt collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, dated, and inscribed in black pen on the title page by the photographer: "With best wishes, Elliott Erwitt New York 14 March 2011". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is named, an important American artist/painter, photography expert, and writer. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This is an Import title and was not distributed outside of Spain. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
