Limited collector's edition with a signed silver gelatin print.
The wisecracking jest of veteran photographer Elliott Erwitt has made his work hugely popular. Wickedly playful but also empathetic and perceptive, Elliott's vast archive of ingenious photographs has been compiled in a limited edition Phaidon publication entitled Snaps.
This beautifully designed book includes a signed silver gelatin print of Elliott's New York (1969), one of his best-loved images of New York City streets. The photograph demonstrates Erwitt's ability to present familiar subjects in new and interesting ways, capturing the unusually quiet street of his native city.
