ELLIOTT ERWITT 100 PHOTOS

The exhibition celebrates one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century through a selection of 100 black and white and color shots, from ironic and surreal to romantic, from portraits of celebrities and children to travel and metropolis images.

A great portraitist, Erwitt has immortalized numerous personalities who have characterized the history of the twentieth century, from the fathers of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro and Ernesto Che Guevara, in a rare smiling expression, to the American presidents he has photographed from the 1950s to today.
