Description



There
are many photography books that deal with New York, but certainly none like
this one. With "New York", photography legend Elliott Erwitt pays
homage to his home metropolis in a monochromatic tribute, creating an
illustrated book that can, without hesitation, be classified as a work of
historical character. Born in Paris, he emigrated to the USA in 1939 and moved
to the Big Apple in 1948. Since then, up until his death, his camera has been
his constant companion as he roamed the streets of the cosmopolitan city.

In this revised edition, Erwitt presents fascinating
black and white photographs taken over the course of his entire career. For the
first time, 16 new pages give readers an insight into previously unpublished
images from the 50s and 60s, allowing them to immerse themselves in a New York
from days long gone. A little nostalgia is guaranteed.

The coffee table book perfectly reflects New
York and its soul.
Celebrities rank alongside the average New Yorker, everyday
moments characterize contemporary history in a cheerful and sometimes slightly
whimsical way that is tyoical for Erwitt's work. That is one of the reasons why
he will be remembered as one of the best street photographers in the world. His
pictures are not only lively and authentic, but also characterized by a very
special irony of everyday situations. This photo book is fun to look at again
and again and always offers new surprises.

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