August 05, 2011
Writing for L’Osservatore Romano,Gaetano Vallini has paid tribute to Elliott Erwitt, a black-and-white photographer born in 1928.
Erwitt, writes Vallini, “has always shown creativity, gusto, class, and eclecticism: qualities that have made him «»a model. But what distinguishes Erwitt is his irony, the capacity to find the most surreal and funny side of dramatic situations.”
