Elliott Erwitt personally selected this stunning collection of work, two thirds of which have never been published before. The generous format of the book and large number of double-page spreads allow you to admire the master's technique and the artistry up close. Every image is photography at its most ebullient and life-enhancing and each reflects the scope of Erwitt's perceptive and eclectic eye. Here is a fitting tribute to this Magnum photographer who has shot such Hollywood legends as Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, yet whose delight in everyday irony has captured many witty moments, including his famous portraits of people and their dogs. The full range of Erwitt's genius on display in this magnificent volume including photographs of Kruschev and Nixon in Moscow in 1959, Tehran in 1967 and a tender moment at a wedding in Israel in 1962.

    Testimone degli eventi più importanti del 20esimo secolo, Elliott Erwitt mostra un grande senso dello humor molto ben rappresentato nei suoi scatti.
    Le sue fotografie hanno un umorismo sottile e poetico che non travalica mai nel volgare e si muovono sempre sul filo dell’inaspettato e del malinconico.
    "Personal Best" riunisce molte di queste immagini ed un numero anche maggiore di fotografie fino ad oggi inedite.
