Elliott Erwitt. Icons
Viale XI Febbraio, 35 Pavia (PV)
Ninety! This year, Elliott Erwitt is celebrating a special birthday and Pavia is joining in with a major retrospective at the Scuderie in Castello Visconteo.
The exhibition, curated by Biba Giacchetti, gathers together 70 of the photographer’s most iconic shots. These include portraits of Marilyn, California Kiss (even if you don’t recognise the title, you have probably seen the photo) and photographs that freeze-frame history, like the portrait of Jackie Kennedy at the funeral of her husband John or an apparently infuriated Nixon jabbing his finger at the chest of an icy Khrushchev.
Follow the perceptive and ironic gaze of one of the greatest masters of the lens and linger to smile at his self-portraits: Erwitt has always loved poking fun at himself and the final section of the exhibition dedicated to selfies is proof of this.
