Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World offers a timely and critical reconsideration of Erwitt¬ís unparalleled life as a photographer. Produced alongside a major retrospective exhibition, the book features examples of Erwitt¬ís early experiments in California, his intimate family portraits in New York, his major magazine assignments and long-term documentary interests, and his ongoing personal investigations of public spaces and their transitory inhabitants. Essays by photography experts based on extensive new interviews with the photographer consider less-studied aspects of Erwitt¬ís work: his engagement with social and political issues through photojournalism, the humanist qualities of his very early photographs, and his work as a filmmaker. Home Around the World traces the development and refinement of Erwitt¬ís unique visual approach over time. With over two hundred photographs, and ephemera including magazine reproductions, advertisements, and contact sheets, this volume is the first to offer a comprehensive historical treatment of Erwitt¬ís body of work and position in the field.
