Exhibition at Elephant Paname in Paris : Elliott Erwitt – Personal Best, Personal Choice.

Review by Christophe de Jouvancourt

PARIS: For their first exhibition since the opening of Elephant Paname, Fanny and Laurent Fiat chose to invite the great photographer Elliott Erwitt, who was there for the preview that happened Thursday.

Elliott Erwitt is born in 1928 in Paris and lived in New York and Los Angeles. His career as a photographer started in 1948, and since then, he photographed the daily life as well as famous people like Marylin Monroe or the Che. “Personal Best, Personal Choice” is, as its name indicates it, a personal selection made by the artist of some of his favorite photos, with even some of them that have never been published before. One can appreciate the particular emotion expressed in the photos.


Elliott Erwitt puts a very offbeat and sensitive sight on daily life situations, people or animals which is often very humoristic. Some of his photos are very well-known as the one with the man jumping in front of the Eiffel Tower with an umbrella during a storm

In parallel, an open space has been dedicated to a young American photographer, Magda Biernat.
