NEW YORK, NY.- Elliott Erwitt’s latest tome represents his carefully selected color photographs from his vast, nearly forgotten archive of primarily Kodachrome as well as some Ektachrome film slides. Kolor as a title is a subtle tribute to George Eastman (who liked words with the letter K because he thought people remembered them better) and his photography empire, Kodak. For most of these images, the color managed to stay miraculously preserved and every evocative detail is as crisp as the date they were developed. Dating back as far as the 1950s, Erwitt’s lens has captured rare, iconic moments with the likes of Marilyn Monroe in that famous white halter dress over the subway grate, and portraits of Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, and John F. Kennedy in the Oval Office, among others. Evocative and diverse, this collection presents the most special of his color photographs and is a historical account of the world for the last half of the 20th century. This is the first book of Elliott Erwitt’s color photography.

Born in 1928 in Paris, Elliott Erwitt spent his childhood in Milan. His family moved back to Paris in 1938, and immigrated to New York the following year, then moved to Los Angeles in 1941. His interest in photography began while he was a teenager living in Hollywood. In 1948 Erwitt moved to New York, where he met Edward Steichen, Robert Capa, and Roy Stryker. After spending the year 1949 traveling in France and Italy, Erwitt returned to New York and began working as a professional photographer. Drafted into the army in 1951, he continued to take photographs while stationed in Germany and France. Erwitt was invited to join Magnum Photos in 1953 by Robert Capa. A member of the prestigious agency ever since, he has served several terms as its president. One of the leading figures in the field of magazine photography, Erwitt’s journalistic essays, illustrations, and advertisements have been featured in publications around the world for more than 40 years. In addition to his work as a photographer, Erwitt began making films in 1970. He has published several books and has had one-man exhibitions in numerous museums and galleries around the world, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Art Institute of Chicago, Paris’s Museum of Modern Art, and Zurich’s Kunsthaus. Today Erwitt is based in New York.
